The next 3 miles were pretty brutal. I was determined to finish 18 miles and I started walking more. We ran around the baseball and softball fields and the loop is .45 miles so after 40 trips around this loop the small incline on one side felt like a giant hill and I stopped trying to run it and turned around to go the other way once I got there. I ran more of the last couple of miles (once I started running the other direction) than I thought I could and I had enough to sprint at the end when I hit 18.00 miles. Granted, 3 miles in 40 minutes is nothing exciting but I think that would have been faster had I stopped running up the little hill much sooner.

**Side note: I found a solution to the chafing/sports bra issues and it's not a new sports bra even though I do have a couple of those. Athletic tape solves everything people! It worked like a charm and from here on out I'll be taping up before my long runs and races.
Any advice for my last couple of long runs?
Predict Allan's time tomorrow and whoever gets closest will win a prize!
