today was my first long run of half-marathon training. well, actually my first long run EVER, but also the first long run of training. brandon went to a baseball game, so chris was kind enough to be my running buddy. he was a great motivator–most of my run was spent thinking “just…follow…chris…keep…following…chris…” i was pretty proud of myself, seeing as i’ve only started training in the last two weeks.
anyway, today i accomplished a 7.1 mile jog. it was slow, but i made it. yippee!
