Chicago Marathon Training, W15D6: 20 miles

Hoo lerd, you guys. So much about this run was just awful. The first ten miles were okay, probably because my legs felt hella good after their intense rubdown yesterday.

But the rest of the run went downhill. Liz and I didn’t get to bed until around 1:00am because of the blog. And I swear to all that is holy that if we hadn’t promised to meet one another, there is no goddamn way I would have pulled myself out of my bed. But we did and so we sweated and grunted and cussed and walked and just kept fucking going and eventually we were done and somehow in a few weeks I’m supposed to do this again plus 6.2 miles?

But at least we got that shit done. Wonder Twins: activate!

And now I’m going to eat everything in Bloomington.
