“The future is but the present a little further on…” Jules Vern 🌎
Small victories often make the biggest difference. 😁Today’s long run featured success sipping water while running.
While that might not seem like a big deal to any other runner out there, for someone like me with Crohn’s disease or other gastric issues while running, todays experiment is a big leap forward.
You see, when I run I haven’t been able to drink at all with out cramping or puking, which is not the best scenario when running a half or full marathon.
I have always struggled in humid environments and the Boston Marathon will be humid. So taking in 1.5 cups of water during my long run with no stops or issues is amazing. I look forward to seeing if I can duplicate it again.
In the meantime, I’m grateful and satisfied. Week 4 training and long run in the books, 80 days and counting to Boston! 💙💛🦄
