There are times I'm surprised how far twenty miles can actually take you. And there are times I'm surprised as in, "that's it...I want to keep going, but if I don't turn around soon, I will have run a marathon today."
That's what happened on Sunday's run-started in Bellevue at the Nature Reserve, ran over the I-90 bridge and around Mercer, then continued across the 'pond' to Lakeside Ave which is part of the Seattle Marathon course. I had planned to run up to Madison and over to the Arboretum, but by the time I made it to Leschi, my watch said 17 miles and by the time I got back to the Nature Preserve, it was twenty three miles. Maybe it's time to go for a 50K.
