This Old Cranky Runner
Somewhere in mile 5 my stomach began to gurgle and rebel. That was the first time in 19 long distance races that I experienced stomach turmoil. I did not like it.
I'll admit I was cranky for a couple of miles. But, I kept running. After a pit stop at the North Pier restrooms, I felt better. I finished the race in 2 hours. Nowhere near a PR today, but that's okay.
I decided to think of this race as a training run. I'll keep running longer distances, and increase my hill and speed workouts to prep for the upcoming half marathon season.
This is where you'll find me writing instead of running. (But, you know I'll be writing about running, right?)
