Had been having some pain in my hip over a few runs, but I did a 17 mile run and an 18 mile run since then. No major problems with those. I figure that if I can do 18 miles, I should be able to do a marathon. Just have to be careful with pacing myself. I still have a couple of big runs left before the race. I think the longest of those is about 20 miles, so we shall see how that one goes. Honestly, it gets a little boring when you run that long. Never done continuous exercise for that long. My 18 miler took me about 2 and 1/2 hours. Can't imagine running for the 3 1/2 to 4 hours it takes to do a marathon. Should be fun . . .
