The long run routine

Welcome to Sunday! That can only mean one thing in my world.
Long runs.
Today was an 18-mile jaunt with some of my favorite runners, the athletes of the Western Cook Run Club. There were certainly some sucky portions, but today's run was completed with a 9:03 overall pace. It was actually one of the first long runs we've done where it wasn't totally crappy outside for the entirety.
I tried fueling with honey packets and Hammer gel. It worked well for my tummy.

This run ended with these:
Have a happy Sunday!

Awesome long run! I've heard a lot of runners with sensitive stomachs say that Hammer Gel works really well for them. I hope your legs are recovering well!

You make 18 miles sound so easy and effortless! :)

Kudos on a job well done. I did 16 on Saturday (outside) and 12 yesterday (treadmill).
