This is the longest I’ve ever run


July 28, 2012 by Amy B

Since the baby being born, that is.

I’m not gonna lie; it was tough for the last half. I didn’t have all of the miles marked, but I am pretty sure I ran the first in 10:40 and the second in 11:00. After that, I know I slowed down. I never stopped to walk, but there are portions of this route that are on a very rocky backcountry road. I hate running on it; I feel like it takes so much more effort, mentally and physically.

I did see two deer and a bunny, which was nice. The world isn’t quite awake at 7:30am on a Saturday.

I’m going to try to build on this every weekend until the marathon (if I run). I am sure there is a formula you should use for adding mileage. I planned on adding about 15-20 min each week. I want to work up to a 3-4 hour run before race. If I can’t do that, I might not run. We’ll see.

Runner, Eater, Mother, Tweeter

Amy, July 2013

I'm a thirty-something suburbanite turned ruralite living in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan. Wife, mom of two, eater of all things delicious, and a runner. This is where I blather on about running and health. Baby Number Three will be here in November (so yes, I'm a little crazy), and I'm running through my pregnancy for as long as my body's willing and able. There's also more of me at Read more here.


All I ask is that the sweater comes back in one piece from school picture day. With the buttons still attached. #arlocardigan #brooklyntweed
