My longest run since October 2014 had been16 miles. I hadn't attempted a single run over 10 miles in several months. And it had been 16 months since I had run more than 25 miles when I toed the line at The Cowtown last Sunday.
What the heck was I thinking?
Well... 5 hours, 12 minutes, and 48 seconds later, I had marathon/ultra-marathon #41 in the books. It wasn't pretty, but considering that my training was next to nothing, I'm happy with the finish.
Perhaps this is a turning point.
