That’s what I’m talkin’ about

  • Seven friends
  • 90 degrees
  • 95 percent humidity
  • 4 water stops
  • 2 GUs
  • 1 chug of Gatorade

Finishing an 18-miler feeling strong–priceless!

  1. That just hurt me reading! 18 in this?? You ladies rock! I did 14, but I was out the door at 5:45… by 7 it was HOT, I'm dumbstruck. (and pretty glad I don't run marathons anymore)! WTG!

  22. Hi Zippy,
    I am so glad that you are able to get those long runs in and do so well at them! I wish I was still training for my marathon! I guess I can sort of live through you and the others who are still marathon training:) Nice work…you are rocking it…even in the crazy heat!

    That's so amazing. We ran 10 tonight and it felt great. i don't know so much about 18. LOL My husband drank 3/4 a gallon of Gatorade in 20 minutes afterward though. I drank 1/4 gallon of it in the same time; it made my stomach hurt.
