Today I ran 11 miles, and they were tough, but sometimes it takes what it takes, right? First 8 miles were an average 8:45 pace. After that I got hungry and shaky -- not good when you have no money, no water, and 3 miles to go. But I was right by an AM/PM, so I went in and got some tap water and some sugar packets. Ate the sugar, drank the water, and hung onto the 8:45 pace for another mile, and then slowed down for the last 2 miles. Moral of the story? If you're running long-ish and fast-ish, carry some fuel!
