A Special Kind of Math

5 hours + 2 liters of water + 2.5 packs of Shot Bloks + 3 salt pills + 84 degrees + 1 mid-run self-congratulatory facebook post + 1 mid-run whining facebook post =

20 miles!

It was too hot out, I didn't get started early enough, I really wanted to quit around mile 11, and it was not enjoyable, but it's done, and I only have to exceed this distance twice again in my life (another 20+ mile on the schedule for two weeks from now - aiming for 22, I think? plus the marathon itself) (until I decide to sign up for another one).
