|Snow covered running path|
Saturday was intended to be my long run day, but after laying around for half the day, I just couldn't convince myself to go run. Part of me was scared of the 18 miles, the other part was just lazy. Sunday morning was much better. I got up, had some breakfast, and put my running clothes right on. The run wasn't so bad. I only took one gel for food because that was my last one. Nowhere near enough fuel for 17.5 miles. And it was apple cinnamon flavor which was disgusting. I did a lot of walking in the last 3 miles, but I finished out 17.5 miles.
Also what is with people not shoveling their sidewalks and Palatine not cleaning all of their trail? Running on the packed, uneven snow was more work. I'll be changing my path this weekend to somewhere that is shoveled.
