Yep, that's right. The gross truth about running and porta potties. I hate those things and I swore I would never use one but a funny thing happens after you've run 6 miles......... you've just gotta go and you DON'T care where it is!!!!
Last Saturday when we ran around Lake Hefner and I did 10 miles I had to use the porta potties. I was lucky when I came to the first one and there was TP left but when I got to the second one it was empty so I had to hold it!! Today when I ran I wore a "fanny pack" (another thing I swore I would never wear!!), and in my pack I put some kleenex which I was soooo grateful for! Neither one of the porta potties had TP today but I was good to go!!
Okay, I know you didn't need to know that but I just felt like some of you would totally understand!!!
I ran 12 miles today!!!!! Can you believe it?? This is my record and I am right on track for my marathon training!!! It was very hard and I am very sore but I know that I can do it!! I feel like I have some "nay sayers" in my life who don't think I can run a marathon in 7 weeks but those of you who know me know that that just makes me want to do it more!!! To prove to myself that I CAN do anything I set my mind to!!!!
Next week we are running a 1/4 marathon plus a 5 K which is around 10 miles. Then the following Saturday we will be up to 14 miles and so forth. I cannot believe I am going to run a marathon so soon but my body just feels like it is ready.
Hope you all have a great week!!
