I ran my 3rd 20 mile run today. It took me 3 hours and about 32 minutes with no bathroom stop. It felt really good until about mile 17 and then it was a bit of a struggle, but I did manage to do the last mile in under 11 minutes. I am so glad that is done.
Tomorrow is our favorite beer festival. We’ve been going for a long time (at either the first or the second, I was 5 days away from delivering Jones). I haven’t always had much to drink (note: I have two October babies, so that’s definitely played a part), but it’s still a blast to hang out and listen to the Oompah band and drink microbrewery beer and eat sausages and just enjoy the fall weather. Oh, and did I mention the beer? This festival is a big part of why I will likely never run the Army 10 miler again. It always seems to be the day before and in my life, good beer is better than racing LOL.
Have a good weekend everyone! (Especially Jess, who is actually running the 10 miler this year)

Congrats for your 20 miles performance. Beer? No I prefer Coke!
That was a fast 20 miles! Congratulations on entering taper! I hope you had fun at Oktoberfest and replenished lots and lots of calories!
Wow, nice time on the 20 miles! I’m slowly inching my way to that mileage…I’m already looking forward to my taper! 🙂
Enjoy the taper.I’ve never been much of a beer person, so I’d definately prefer a race to a beer festival…but that’s just me.
