..and 18, dang it.

Last week my dad posted on his blog about (one of) his (many) twenty mile run(s). I'm Jake Emmett and "make mine a 20!" he said.. Well I'm just his daughter, so make mine an 18.

But, hey! An 18! Today I ran eighteen miles, in three loops of six miles. And I passed two different Taco Bells three different times each. Eighteen miles, six Taco Bells, breaking all my PR's in one morning..

After twelve miles I really didn't want to go do another loop. But then I remembered how the day before, Stefan had asked me if I consider myself to be a self-driven person. I thought about all my marathon training and my time at Disneyworld and deciding to go to college and everything I accomplished in high school and I decided, yeah. I think I am a pretty self-driven person. And self-driven people don't quit at twelve miles, dang it! dang it.. sooo, eighteen it was.

After my run I went to the Provo temple to do baptisms for the dead. After the temple I went to see Lindsay, Taylor, Meg, and Jess. While I was with them I stuffed myself with Costa Vida and a milkshake and that, dear internet, is my kind of day.

Congratulations on the milage AND Taco Bell PRs! Those TB PRs are so rare but oh so special. Unfortunately, I don't believe the TOU marathon passes any Tacos el Bellos but it does go pass one Chuck-A-Ramma!
