Saturday marked the first official long run of MARATHON TRAINING for Vegas, with 16 miles. One of my college friends was going to be back in town from San Diego for the weekend, and mentioned that she'd love to come along for part of the run. Running buddy? Yes please!!!! She's been having some IT band issues, so she was hoping she could make it 7-8 miles with me. I woke up Saturday morning, checked the clock, and realized that we were supposed to meet up for our run in 9 minutes!!!! WTH alarm clock??? I called her to see if she was on her way yet, and of course she was just arriving. I hustled to put in my contacts and get all my long run shiz together. No time to eat and wait for my food to -ahem- digest, so pre-long run fuel fail right off the bat.
We ended up doing 16 miles in 2:37:59 for a pace of 9:53.
