[That's not my foot] Today I ran 11 miles. It was my fastest long run yet, averaging 9:12 per mile. I’m getting very excited for the Half Marathon next month. I’m starting to concentrate on my speed runs a little more, because in just a couple of weeks, I’ve got to start tapering off my training to get rested for race day. I really pushed it today, only allowing myself a short slow period around mile 9. And, I’ll admit that during the last quarter mile today, I imagined the crowds cheering me in to the finish line and I ran a little faster.
