The 18 Miler

My marathon training is coming along very well. I managed to pull out an 18 mile run today. The first 13 miles were relatively easy. Once I hit 15-17, things got shaky. My body ultimately told me to stop at 18. I walked through the Tenderloin to Geary and jumped on the bus. This was my first run over 13.1 miles, and though I hit the wall, there's no shame in running 18 miles under 4 hours! I am very lucky to live in this city. Below is the course I took.
