I headed out last Saturday for a 20 miler at Laurels Preserve. This was long run #217 for me. This was also the 43rd straight month where I’ve done at least 1 run of twenty miles or more. Yes, I keep close track of my long runs. My belief has always been that if you want to get good at something, then you need to do that thing. And eventually I’d like to get good at running long distances. . .
While there’s some flat sections, I was able to get quite a bit of climbing in – 3,000 feet in all. No quite as much as my next race (VT100), but close enough. Overall, a fun place for a long run.
