Downhill and Uphill – Elise

I did my 20-mile run this past Saturday. I went out to Hopkinton and ran the course for ten miles and then turned back. I think it was a good comparison of the Marathon since the first ten miles are downhill so I had to run uphill the second half of my run, similar to Heartbreak Hill. I downloaded two "Wait Wait Don't Tell Me" episodes and two "This American Life" episodes that pretty much covered my run. I also tried out my new fuel belt, which was fairly comfortable and very helpful. I felt pretty good the next day, just some cramping in my foot. I think I am going to try carb loading before my next long run and see if it works.

Good job sis. if you can find it, try to download the "Fiasco" episode of TAL, good and funny one. Ab's been using a frozen 16 oz sport drink bottle to ice her foot for similar issues, the shape makes it easy to use while sitting on the couch.
