It may not have been my fastest average time, but look at that distance! SEVEN miles! WOW! That's the furthest I've ever gone in my whole life at one time. I am all but 100% sure that they never made me run more than 5 miles at a time in the Army. I had just passed the 2.5 mile mark and started to toy with the idea of going to 3.5 miles instead of 3.1 for my turn around and try for a personal best of 7 miles. I figured that if I felt like it was too much, when I go to my originally planned 6.2 miles I would just stop and walk (yeah right, like that was going to to happen). I think just giving myself that out and permission to stop if I felt I needed to was all I needed to give myself the oomph to finish the 7 miles. And I have no doubt that I can take it even further. This means I am only 6.1 miles away from doing a 1/2 marathon distance! OMG!
