Well, it was too short lived, but I got to run with Becca!!! She was in town to say goodbye to her parents as they embark on their mission for the church. So it was a super short stay and we had to get the run in before everyone got up and she then got in trouble for spending too much time with me :)
It was slow and even with walk breaks I had our pace at 10:01 (but 2 miles short, because I stopped my watch for some reason some time)...so I'm sure she had me running a high 8 when I could tolerate it! But, I was (ready for it???) exhausted, tired, slow, felt like my legs weighed 500 pounds and my breathing was so labored I could barely talk when we were actually running. By 12 miles I was certainly done. I did take Daisy again and even though it was dark, she behaved herself and had fun exploring Murdock canal trail while we ran.
We finished and went into her parent's home to say goodbye...well, and hour later I finally started to leave. But, then her parents wanted a treat, so we went on a Swig and Lehi Donut Factory run! Mmmmm. Starting out the day with a sugar rush isn't the best thing, especially for my body right now and especially after a long run, but it sure was delicious!! Great times with Becca and I even wore lipstick ALL day!! I guess it was its own kind of Halloween run :D
