The good news is that we are officially done with our long runs until the marathon. You don't even know how exciting that is.
The bad news is that I'm not exactly what I pictured myself when I pictured a "marathon runner." I was supposed to be super skinny and tone. In other words, my measurements and my weight still haven't changed. I don't think running is the sport to choose to lose weight. If you're like me, you'll realize it just makes you eat like a teenage boy.
The ugly news is my feet. After our L18 last week, my feet were in pain. Not just the youjustran18milesonme achy, sore feeling, but a true pain. So, I decided new shoes were a must. I'm so glad I got them because I didn't feel that pain today. My feet hurt like hell, don't get me wrong, but today it truly was just the youjustran20milesonme achy, sore feeling. However, my feet have looked so ugly after runs. They are all red and purple blotchy looking. They really feel fine right now, but they are still ugly.
And lastly, after running 20 miles today, guess what hurts. My jaw. Seriously, it started hurting around mile 5. At the end of 20 I couldn't close my mouth all the way. I have taken 4 Aleve today and when it is in full swing, I'm good to go, but when it wears off I can't close my jaw all the way. Weird, but true.
