I’ve hit the 8-mile mark. Only time will tell if the three blisters I have on my big toe/the balls of my feet were worth it. They don’t hurt too bad, but whenever they pop I’m sure I won’t be walking well, let alone running. I may just take the week off running to let them heal a little–it’d be nice to ride a bike 🙂
There are a couple of photo highlights from my run.
This guy came up to the trail from a country road. Then he basically barreled past me (it’s not hard to pass me, I run slow). And I realized he was barefoot! He wasn’t running with his arms up until right when I took the picture, but I just think this is a once-in-a-lifetime photo op 😀
I found this very appropriate. The light at the end of the tunnel is the end of my 8-mile run. And boy, it couldn’t have come soon enough.
