I ran 18 miles this morning with a local running club. Loco Motion. It was so great! Every two miles they had a sag wagon for us...anything and everything a runner needs on those long runs was available. Most importantly though, were the friendships that I was able to make. I met lots of great people and I don't know why I haven't joined a club before. Most of the people there are training for St. George in October. They have long runs scheduled every Saturday throughout the valley. Today we were up Emigration Canyon; the Deseret News Marathon course. Such a pretty run! I think we must have run about 12 miles (give or take) uphill. The final hill just about kicked my butt, but I triumphed! (: I pushed myself harder than I probably would've on my own. I came home so excited!
