#124: 7 Miles
There are certain distances that I revere-- and for some inexplicable reason, 7 miles is one of them. Today I ran my standard 7 mile loop for the first time since the early fall, and I was reminded of how much I appreciate this distance. It always feels like the first substantial distance amount- but also a manageable one. For as much as I love and am acclimated to distance running, I am always slightly amazed when I run any distance over 10. But 7 always feels doable, and whenever I cross the threshold of 7 miles in a training program, I am energized. It always feels like the real work has officially begun.
