>General Running>Why am I so nervous?!
Ok, so I didn't make a full 16...at least not in one try, LOL! ... Then I went back out and ran about 14.75 miles ...
I had to stop to get more to drink (only put about 24oz in my Camelbak--next time I will fill it closer to full). Of course, after stopping to drink my last mile was stiff and painful. ..
I've never been so crampy after a run, either. My calves and feet are pretty angry with me at the moment. I'm really not sure at the moment how I could ever contemplate a full marathon. I think this 25k might be the death of me. Anything over 2.5 hours seems to be my limit....

All my long runs lately are races. That way I have lots of company, people handing me water, nuns cheeering, and I get a medal at the end!
