going the distance

We're going the distance. So far we've completed 10 miles with no problems. Hills are a different story. Luckily the course will not be inundated with steep inclines such as the Stanford Dish. However, by the end of this month we will attempt to break 16 miles, and we'll be returning to the trails and dams of Los Gatos which will be challenging to say the least.

The half marathon distance is 13.1 miles. Who'd imagine we'd be able to reach that milestone! With a couple more months to go, we'll continue to build our momentum and endurance and leave the single digit miles in the dust.

Thanks to the salt shots, energy bars, and electrolyte infused beverages, we'll be ready and waiting when October approaches.
