This morning after my beloved (and necessary) mug of coffee, I set off on my 17 mile run! This is the farthest distance I’ve tackled yet in this round of marathon training. Definitely a bit psychologically daunting.
I ran along Ocean Beach to the Sutro Baths, and then through Lands End towards the Presidio.
Isn’t the fog shrouding the Golden Gate lovely?
I fought the throngs of tourists along Fisherman’s Wharf and the Embarcadero, and came upon the Bay Bridge illuminated in sunlight.
At the Ballpark, I turned around and ran back to the Ferry Building, where I grabbed a much needed peppermint tea at Peet’s before hopping on Muni and heading back to my apt for a warm shower. The run went really well, especially since my legs have been so achey lately. The first 12 miles were fantastic, and the final 5 weren’t too bad either. I’m quite pleased to have run 17 miles before noon!
