The 12 Miles of Saturday

During the 12 miles of Saturday, I encountered all these things:
  • 12 miles a covered,
  • 11 turkeys a waddling,
  • 10 horses grazing,
  • 9 deer a leaping,
  • 8 barn cats meowing,
  • 7 hundred birds a singing,
  • 6.2 miles a racing,
  • 5 dozen cows,
  • 4 water stations,
  • 3 chocolate GUs,
  • 2 hundred runners,
  • and a tired, happy girl at the end.

I couldn't really figure out how to integrate the manure puddle I stepped in, the 2nd place age group awards my sister and I brought home, and the blood my sister coughed up. (She's fine- just finishing strong.) It was a great day! : )

Explanation of this randomness: I ran 5.8 miles by myself early this morning and then went to town with my mom and sister to run a 10K at 9 am. Even it wasn't 12 miles continously, it's just going to have to count. Building up to 14 next week!


  1. Congrats on the AG award!! And um, coughing up blood? That sounds not so good...

  2. You crack me up! That was too cute! :0) Congrats on the award! That's awesome!

  3. I think you integrated the manure puddle rather nicely into this post!
    Awesome on the AG award!

  4. New Follower! I would say 12 miles ran in one day counts! Great Job on the award, also!
