Today I completed my last long training run for the DC Rock ‘N’ Roll Half-Marathon next Saturday. I ran 11 miles this morning and I am extremely happy with my pace. Hopefully this is a good indication that I will be ready to run 13.1 miles one week from today! But I could still use a little bit of help…from you. Up until this point, I have been doing all of my long training runs with my friend Brie, but next week I will be running the race solo. Brie has kept me motivated during our long weekend runs, however, next week I will need to rely on my tunes to keep me going. Do you have any suggestions for good running songs that I can add to my playlist that will help me make it across that finish line? If so, please share.
As a side note, many people have asked me if I have been losing weight as a result of all of my training runs. Short answer: No.
Here is my explanation:
My current running app (RunKeeper) tells me that I burned over 1,400 calories this morning. Since I actually don’t have an app that tells me how many glasses of wine I have earned…I basically assume that I can have as many damn glasses as I want!
