This is how I felt after my 20 miler with Katie!
When I jumped for the camera, which was the day after, well, I felt like my body was going to break into smithereens!
I guess running 20 miles @ 7:45 with last mile @ 7:22 would do that to you, particularly when you are in the middle of several 70+ miles!
Feeling much better right now after 8 miles of 9+min/miles on trails.
My reward for the 20 miler? Baking and decorating this cake for Petru's party! He drew a picture and I had to copy it! There is a road, going over a bridge, and a railroad crossing and a train, and the gates are down so the train can go safely! It was a hit with the kids:)
And since I had my "Betty" on, I made this cupcakes for Petru's class. He is obsessed with clocks these days! And that's my baking for the year! Nothing else until next year on the baking front from me! There will be lots of running, though, including, hopefully more fast long runs with Katie!
