Probably shouldn't have run this hard...it seemed hard, but after I got started I just wanted to finish. Felt pretty tired, heavy legs, labored breathing.

1 Peter 1:6-7 

In this you rejoice, though now for a little while, if necessary, you have been grieved by various trials, so that the tested genuineness of your faith—more precious than gold that perishes though it is tested by fire—may be found to result in praise and glory and honor at the revelation of Jesus Christ.

I've been on the stronger antibiotic for four days now and am feeling much better. Hopefully I'll be back 100% in a few days. I can't afford to miss much more running.

Galatians 2:20 

I have been crucified with Christ. It is no longer I who live, but Christ who lives in me. And the life I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me.

I thought I felt really good before and during this run but at mile 14 I felt like I ran out of energy. My legs got tight and heavy and I slowed way down instead of speeding up. Oh well, overall it wasn't too bad.
