Day 1,739 12.5 mile run

Today I needed to catch up on my miles for the week and thought about doing a long run, using the ING Georgia Half Marathon course.

It was my first long run since my 14.1-mile run on Aug. 26 and my 14.5-mile run the week before that was the longest run that I had done since the Oct. 10, 2010 Chicago Marathon.

Today the weather was just right (56 degrees/90 percent humidity). At many parts I didn't feel like my legs were really in it but I think they had enough to see me through the end.

I cut through on Highland/Baker and N. Highland Avenue and likely could have done another 14-mile run had I continued on the ING course but since I didn't have to, I didn't.

Another nice run in the books!

Time: 9:26 a.m.
Temp: 56 degrees (90 percent humidity, but I didn't feel it)
Gear: T-shirt, short (orange Nike Peachtree), shorts, Nike Air Pegasus+ 27/A.
