    That’s an amazing pace! Also, something I thought of, you could have filled your water bottle from the sinks in the walmart bathroom if the fountain wasn’t working!

    I am so impressed that you ran 19 miles on your own. Whenever I’ve had long runs, I’ve always been with a group, which makes it much easier to entertain myself. I find it difficult (and a lot less motivating) to be alone. Kudos to you! And now, have a blast at the beach!

    Way to go! 19 miles solo is hardcore! I think it helps to break down really long runs into little chunks like that. If I think about the full distance, I get overwhelmed.*

    Awesome job! I get in the mind frame of the faster you run the sooner you’ll be done and that works great. For some reason I’ve never boinked!

    How do you like Shot Bloks? I tried them for the first time a couple of weeks ago and the tummy was not happy!

    Enjoy the beach! After 19 miles you deserve to veg!

    WOW! So impressive. I just started my marathon training and I really want to bang out the big runs early, but I am always questioning whether it is too dark outside that early. Any tips? Do you wear reflective gear or something?

      I have a headlight that I wear. I also run with my phone and have reflective strips on my shoes. All of the roads I run on have sidewalks, if they didn’t I’m not sure if I would feel safe running on them in the dark.

    Wow! Way to go :) that sounds like a fantastic run! Now you get to go and relax at the beach. The smoothie you made sounds delicious. Have a great time relaxing in the sunshine!!

    Great job rock star! Wish I had the motivation to get my runs out of the way that early. I’m still waiting for some sun before I do 9 miles this morning.

    Wow, that’s awesome!
    I also like to eat before I shower. My husband thinks it’s disgusting but whatever, I am SO HUNGRY.
    Hope you had a great day at the beach, you certainly deserve it after that run.

    19 miles – that’s fantastic! I’m just starting to train for a half-marathon in August, and our “long run” of the day was 2 miles. Still, feels great to be training for something and putting feet on the pavement.

    You are my idol. I started running last July. I hope to be running 19 miles one day. I am doing a 7 mile long run this evening. Even at only 7 miles I won’t be able to keep your pace…..baby steps. :)

    Great run!! I usually do mini loops (or smaller loops surrounded by bigger loops for variation) to get the distance in too. I think it’s much harder mentally to run loops too because you’re constantly approaching you’re stopping point. It makes for good mental training for marathoning :)

    Enjoy the beach!

    Congrats on the 19 miler, I’m too scared to sign up for the Flying Pig Marathon because of the hills! I wish I was running a spring marathon, miss training for something! Enjoy the breach it’s raining and cold here in good ole ny

    That top is super cute, it it one of those Moving Comfort one-piece dealys?

    Is this your longest run on your plan, or are you doing a 20+ miler?

    Awesome run!! Hopefully tomorrow will be a smooth day on recovery if you keep yourself mobile. :) I am down here in FL this week, myself and am looking at 20 in the morning — I think I might do some road, some beach but my first 8-miler this morning was pretty warm. I kinda got spanked. Oh, well, still looking forward to it in the morning! Hope you had a great beach day!

    great job on the 19 miles solo…I checked 7 off which is the longest ever for me and am working my way up to a half in May, I can’t imagine 19 solo!
    Also where did you get that pinkish tank top…I love that it’s not tight around the torso and am always on the hunt for that style

    Florida raised, live in Texas now. I didn’t really start running outside until I moved to Texas, but on a recent trip back home I ran near my parents house and stopped into Publix for a bathroom and water break. My boyfriend thought I was crazy. So awesome. Yet another of my long list of reasons that Publix is the best grocery store ever.
