20 MILES. Poof! The longest run of the training cycle is gone. App quit working at 7 miles, phone died at 14, I’m ready to get a GPS Garmin. 😅 Hips and butt started to get really sore around 16 miles, but I kept my pace strong till the end. I saved @marathonacademy ‘s 262nd episode for this run and I’m so glad I did. Listening to so many amazing audio clips from other runners really gave me the inspiration I needed to get through this one. Now BRING ON THE TAPER TIME!!! 😁
Well I did it, and OMG was it hard!! 2h 50m 13s was my chip time and so amazed I got it under 3 hours especially considering the weather. It lashed it down constantly all the way and even added some wind in just for fun lol. Still super proud of myself, I never ever thought I'd be here saying I've finished a Half Marathon. . . . #halfmarathontraining #halfmarathon #womenrunningcommunity #womenrunner #womenrunning#womenrunners #thisgirlcanrunning #thisgirlcanrun #thisgirlcan#igrunner #runthisbody #runner #runningcommunity #runnningmotivation #runlikeagirl #stravarun #runnerscommunity #runhappy #irunthisbody #runnersworld#runchat#leicester#leichesterhalfmarathon#nessywinsmedals#runchatuk#ukrunchat

When your sister is home for a few days- you sign up for a 5k together! 😍 Ran this super informal race in the rain together. There were a total of 8 runners, the rest were walkers, and we lined up next to a tree to start. 😂 A fun way to start the day with one of my favorite people.
