  4. Oh, that is such a huge bummer. You know what'll make you feel better? The next time you run and totally crush it. In the meantime, don't let it get you down.

  9. Sorry you had a rough run. I walked a lot on my long run today- but the most important thing is that we got out there and did something. You are a rock star and next week will be better. :-)

  11. Next time will be better ... I know that doesn't help at all, but maybe what Navy Wife on a Diet said will make you laugh. I love the Lion King reference ... haha.

    Every time I have an awful run I start to think "why the heck do I do this? why am I training for this marathon? this is stupid!" then on my next run I am reminded and all of those questions are answered :)

  13. I pretty much did the same for my yesterday run. Was supposed to be 23 km, but at 8 km felt a twinge in my knee (I blame this dang West Coast rain!), I held out until 11 km before calling it quits ... least you didn't have to call a cab – they're dang expensive! Yay Portland!!!
