9 miles in the books!!!!

Today I set my run up so I would run three miles, three times hehe.. The idea of trying to run a 9 mile loop was overwhelming, and since I am not good at carrying stuff with me, I knew it would not work bc I would not have water or fuel.

So I decided I would run a few of my fave go to three mile runs. And it was one of the best decisions I have made.

(My neck looks creepy here...)
Here are the splits:
Mile 1 10:40
Mile 2 10:56
Mile 3 11.09
Mile 4 12:43 (included walking .1 mile while drinking water and eating half a chocolate gu)
Mile 5 11:22
Mile 6 11:30
Mile 7 12.38 (another .1 mile walk and gu/water break)
Mile 8 12:03
Mile 9 11:38
Total of 01:44:44

Here was the playlist:
