The 15 miles that almost kicked my ass! Did you read that? FIFTEEN MILES! That’s the only PR I made today (distance) and I’m honestly okay with it. Once I finally got my butt out the door at 8:15am, not 9:15am, I felt pretty good. The first 8 miles were decent, but then my feet just started to feel like bricks. I walked most of mile 4 and 8 to keep me feeling strong. By mile 12 though, I was out of juice and glycogen.
I realized after my run that I suck at carb loading. I didn’t even hit 300g yesterday! Oops… that definitely explains part of why this got so hard.
And let’s not even talk about my positive splits today. The miles are done, I feel decent, and I’m happy! I didn’t really have any knee issues, but I did get a surge of pain on the left side of my left food around mile 13 (then it subsided a minute or two later). I also had a gross side stitch after refueling at mile 8.
I stayed pretty close to home, so it got a little lot boring, but I’ll explore other areas to run soon enough.
Now, there’s a tortilla pizza with my name on it. Oh, and here’s one of my roommates adorable cats!
I met Joey at VidCon today, and without a doubt the 3 hour wait was SO worth it! Me, Nicole, and Shannon all went up to him together in our matching shirts we made. Holy poop you guys, he is even more beautiful in person. and he smiled the entire time I talked to him :’) He said my flower snapback hat was cute and signed it along with my autograph book. Then I gave him the flower crown I made him and he immediately said it was cute and put it on, and put Nicole’s flower crown on top of it! Joey was complimenting our shirts and saying he had seen pictures of them on Twitter! Then, he asked us a question that made my heart stop. “Do you guys want to be in my vlog?” AND LET ME JUST TELL YOU THAT I’VE BEEN REPLAYING THAT MOMENT IN MY HEAD ALL. DAY. It was incredible. Then Joey started vlogging himself wearing our flower crowns and panned the camera over us to show the front and backs of our shirts and during that HE LITERALLY ZOOMED IN ON OUR BOOBS TO SHOW THIS POCKET WE HAVE ON THE SHIRTS WITH A PIC OF JOEY COMING OUT OF IT. He also asked a few questions and Nicole and Shannon did most of the talking (I was too nervous anyway so I didn’t mind at all). Afterwards, we were in complete shock and stopped in the middle of the room and just cried. And at the moment I’m pooping my pants waiting for him to post the vlog.
