I ran 17 miles last night. Maybe a little more.

I've struggled with marathon training in the past. I'd get to around half-marathon distance and just run out of gas. I'd find excuses to quit.

Looked like that was gonna happen last night. It's supposed to rain all weekend long, and Friday night was going to be my only opportunity to get in any kind of long run where I didn't get soaked and cold. I got around 9-10 miles and my legs got heavy and my battery started dying on my phone. The route I run is pretty boring and I need music, plus there's pretty dark parts of it that I need the flashlight on my phone for. I decided that if my cell died, I'd stop, but that was my only excuse.

That sucker rallied and so did I. This is a good thing.

My old college roommate Devin is coming into town for the day tomorrow. I'm kind of hoping it doesn't turn into a day-long booze-a-thon, but that may be inevitable.
