Day 244. 18 mile run

Mar 3, 2013

I’ve heard a lot from marathoners saying that one needs to have run 18 miles at least once before the race. So today was the day I picked to run.

I had no idea what it meant to run 18 miles or how my body would react. I wasn’t in good condition for the run, however, I couldn’t delay the 18 mile run anymore since I’m only two weeks away from the LA marathon.

It was doable until I was 16 miles in, then it became pretty painful. I don’t know how I finished the last two miles. My toenail felt numb. It took over three hours to complete.

But at the end, I felt so happy!

I can see why people say an 18-mile run is a must before the first full marathon. Running 26.2 miles still sounds scary, but I’m definitely less fearful!
