When 8 Miles Feels Like A Marathon

Today was another one of those days that I can see the results of the downward turn my health took this past year.

Just about a year ago I ran the Groundhog Marathon, the full 26.2 miles. Today I only ran 8 miles but it felt like I was trying to run a marathon. There was a time when I would have easily ran 10 miles in the time it took me to run 8 today, and I would have finished strong.

On the bright side, I was about ready to call it a day at about 4 miles, but I kept telling myself that I could get this run done, I’d done it before. So despite it being a hard one I guess it was a successful one.
