I'm STILL a self confessing, self professing know-it-all, or so I think!

I love running, when running loves me back!

Those who follow/read my blog, know my troubles of late running … trying to run I should say. I just haven’t been able to muster strength/energy for any sustained distance. Today I did. Maybe this post should read; from 800m to 12K?! Kinda like that one too, lol! Yes, I ran like I used to. Even a couple of kilometers in, I knew I had it. I felt it. And, as God as my witness, I kept saying to myself, “I’m gonna run a half-marathon” “I’m gonna run a half-marathon” … over, and over, I kept repeating it. At around 10K, my Garmin – for the first time too, gave me the LOW BATTERY warning. And, I had no clue how much time I had before it died completely. I started panicking, and bailed at 12K. Would I have gotten the 21.1K? Maybe, maybe not … I do know that I would have gotten 16 or 17 for sure. Anyways, it is what it it, I’m very happy … oh, and you know me, I still gotta kvetch about something, lol … Garmin messed up kilometer #1 … I easily ran 50m more past my marker. It shoulda been a 4:45 – 4:50 lap. I only mention this, ‘cuase it woulda made all my laps sub 5 minutes. Which they all were! Whatever … here’s this morning’s 12K.
