This was my last long run before the Gulf Coast Half! And it was a taper run! 

I had 6-8 miles on the schedule! The weather was pretty great! The temperature was in the 60's when I started running! 


I got to see the sun rise as I ran! I always love that on long runs! 

Around mile 2, I turned into the first neighborhood and was greeted with an even prettier sight from the sun! 


I was feeling great on this run! I had a hill to conquer but it wasn't too bad. 


I love that I have the option to run in the country not far from my house. It's always so peaceful! 


Before I knew it I had reached mile 4 and the time to turn around and head home! The first half of the run had flown by! 

I reached another neighborhood where I had some fun with some running selfies! These are a lot harder than they look y'all lol! 




And then I was on the 4 lane highway. I always pray right here for my safety as well as for the all clear when I need to cross the road. My prayers worked because I didn't have to slow down at all when I needed to run across the road! No traffic!


I reached my last road...the one that would take me straight home!


I was having such a good run that I ran 8.5 miles instead of the required 8! ;-)



Slowing down some during this training has really helped. I'm not sure what that will mean come race day but I'm not racing for a PR. I'm just looking forward to the journey!

Be sure to follow me on Instagram for all my race fun this weekend!
