Highlights of a good, but mostly unremarkable run:
Mile 9: Bathroom pit stop at the assisted living facility. This is becoming a long run norm. Thanks, old people.
Mile 10: First Gu: chocolate outrage. Tastes exactly like brownie batter. For some that could probably be stomach-turning in the middle of a run... I found it amazing and delicious. I want more of this. Maybe just for dessert.
Mile 15: Ipod starts randomly turning the volume up to full blast. Ear drums split. I finally fix the problem by putting the ipod on lock (duh).
Mile 16: Time for the vanilla gingerbread Gu. Made the mistake of squeezing the packet and seeing the yellow glittery gelatin... shoved it in my mouth anyhow. Tasted like a gingerbread cookie with frosting. Not my most favorite thing mid-run, but felt like a sugar jolt.
Mile 18: Vanilla Gingerbread burp. Not delicious.
Mile 20: 3:07:27, not including the bathroom and a few short stops where I had to readjust the camelpak so it didn't rub my skin raw. Glad to be done, but if I had to keep going, I could have I think.
I'm off to make a veggie burger wrap and to head to Richele's class!
