Training Complete!

I dont want to sound mean, snobby or rude when I say this... I don't like to particpate in 5k events, unless for a good cause because I think an entrance fee of $35 or more is pretty hefty.. Granted, I have never organized a race and I encourage people to participate in 5ks, but personally, I like longer running events.. 

I started off running 5k events and I probably could get better times if I would focus on shorter runs, but I just love long runs.. Oddly enough, I would rather beat my body than run easy runs.. Interesting how that is... I don't know why I do it, but I do it... 

Today, I completed 14 miles and it was a heck of a run. I hurt in places I can't even begin to describe. My body is EXHAUSTED!' I have trained for the River Bank Run (25k) happening May 12 since January. I thought it would be fun to look back at pictures from this journey.. 

I remember running 6 miles in an Ice storm...


Or during an unseasonably warm couple of days in March...
 
One of the first long runs....

These are pictures taken from my 14 mile run today.. I am very excited and feel well accomplished. I know I am not going to PR the race, but I am just thankful that I have been seizure free and God continues to allow my body to run! 
 Since I have done all the hard work and the long run on the training schedule, the runs drop down from here.. I am going to try and get another 12 miler in and than slowly drop off.. I pray my body will continue to stay strong and God will allow me to finish this journey!


Do you run? What are you training for?
