It was a little strange motivation wise. One of the things I kept thinking about to keep me going was "Hey when I get home I'm putting on my blog/twitter/facebook/socialnetworkingpukage that I ran home from this town!" Is that odd to spend four hours thinking about what you are going to post?
Yeah four hours. For 18.0 miles. This is not good. Especially considering I felt like I took very few walking breaks. I did sort of sprain/tweak my ankle about five miles in. I think I had been making fairly decent (all relative) time for me up until that point. After that I wound up running on the wrong side of the road because the opposite slope of the road somehow eased the pain of continuing to plod on. I know I'm not going to get much faster between now and the race (3.5 weeks away) but seriously, MARIO LOPEZ IS GOING DOWN!!!! I really have nothing personal against Monsieur Lopez (OK there was the whole afront to society in the form of his "acting") and I apologize if you are president of the local chapter of "Fans of Actors who randomly rip their shirt off to distract you from their complete lack of acting ability Fan Club" but I need an antagonist to my story. I need a focus for my marathon rage. When I bust out the "check it fools" posts, there needs to be a target, thus I choose Mario. Mario prepared to be pwn3d...
(This means I need to be an electrifying 5:41 marathon time)
(How did I go from horses and barns to calling out AC Slater?)
