Long Anniversary Run!

Today was my 6th Wedding Anniversary. My husband isn't home so I didn't do anything special except run my first 20 miler with the stroller. I felt pretty good the whole run until mile 19.5. I wasn't sure if I would make the last .5 but I was running slower to start my cool down and I made it. I then walked another .5 for more of a cool down. My children slept most the run and were great when they were not sleeping. They didn't complain or cry once. I ran the last 10 miles faster (1:35:08) then the first 10 miles (1:39:11).

Mile splits:
Mile 1: 10:11 Mile 2: 9:33 Mile 3: 10:11 Mile 4: 9:54 Mile 5: 10:01
Mile 6: 9:44 Mile 7: 9:56 Mile 8: 9:53 Mile 9: 9:57 Mile 10: 9:51
Mile 11: 9:27 Mile 12: 9:29 Mile 13: 9:50 Mile 14: 9:31 Mile 15: 9:13
Mile 16: 9:26 Mile 17: 9:10 Mile 18: 9:25 Mile 19: 9:12 Mile 20: 10:22


  1. i can't imagine! running that far with the hills around here with a stroller. glad you were able to get it in. 2 weeks and counting for my marathon

  2. OK you ran 20 miles pushing a stroller and your kids were good???? Wow oh WOW!! That is stinkin amazing. You are one tough mamma..

  3. I didn't know what I was thinking when I decided to train for a marathon when I knew my husband wasn't going to be around much. Now, everyone knows so I have to keep up the training...stroller or no stroller.

  4. I'm impressed - 20 miles pushing a stroller with two (!) kids in it and you did it in with a great pace!
