My longest run yet...

I’m training to run the marathon. Sometimes it occurs to me that I’m crazy, even though I know a million others have done it and do it regularly. I’m not that much of a runner, so I don’t what I was smoking/drinking/inserting into my veins me when I signed up. But, I did. And this weekend, I had my longest run yet—10 miles. I seriously wasn’t sure I’d make it, but I had an encouraging friend who kept pushing w/words like “just focus on one thing and don’t think about running” or “that’s one thing you’ll have to do in the marathon—run through your pain—just run through it”. Knowing that she wanted to finish too kept me going. Thanks girl! So, if I was struggling with 10 miles, how will I manage 26.2 miles, you ask? I’ll let you know when I figure that one out! I know one thing for sure, I’ll need an MP3 player. If you feel like buying me a generous gift for no reason other than you love me for existing, please get me an MP3 player.
