Preparation is going well. I just finished my first double digit long run of this training session. I got up at 4am to do it but got to rock these awesome socks that Courtney at Run, Courtney Run hooked me up with for winning her virtual 5K a while back. They are part of a 3 sock set from Little Miss Matched and I absolutely love them. (Thanks Courtney!!)
(You'd be surprised how hard it is to take a picture of socks while you're wearing them.)
I felt pretty good (who wouldn't with such bitchin' socks) and managed to maintain an 8:49 pace. I'm supposed to be running around 9:30ish but I decided not to pay any attention to my watch and just run comfortably. Overall, it really felt great and was a huge confidence booster. I'm excited to continue on with my training and see how things go.
Hope everyone has a great holiday weekend. I'm looking forward to just chillin' and hanging out with my family... should be a great time.
