Marathon training week 15 workout 7: 20 mile long run.
Boom! It’s taper time y'all!!!!
I did an out and back and the way out was uphill into insane wind and the way back was downhill and with the wind which meant big negative splits and my last mile was my fastest at 8:54!! And I saw beautiful fall colors and zombies and @malloryrunsthis so overall it was a really good run. MUCH better than I expected.
“Delicious autumn! My very soul wedded to it, and if I were a bird I would fly about the earth seeking the successive autumns.”

🍂🍂🍂🍂🍂🍂🍂🍂🍂🍂🍂🍂🍂🍂🍂🍂🍂🍂🍂 Like running in an oil painting, this trail turns into Autumn’s version of a winter wonderland in October.
It’s paved with gold for a few weeks each year, and has always been one of my best thinking places, somewhere I’ve felt close to God and a place I can’t help running with my heart, where the trees provide the music as the wind blows through and fish jump in the river along side. I’m convinced it’s one of the most magical places on earth. Running heaven.

What was s'pose to be a 3-mile recovery turned into a rain-soaked 5-miler. I think that rain gave me life though because those last 3 miles seemed pretty effortless. It started pouring really good during mile 3, so I sped up a bit to get to some tree-lined neighborhood streets to break it up. Most definitely a smooth effort in the rain for sure. Can’t complain at all. Tomorrow, I get to go a lil longer. Looking forward to that!
