A girls journey to RunDisney and find herself.
Tips for making a long run more bearable:
Think in minutes not miles - I don’t know why this works for me, but I can more easily head out for say a x minute run vs. x amount of miles. 
DONT GO FAST - I know this is the the most common piece of advice, but just ENJOY your long run - this is the day you just get to run and run and run and not get tired - so just enjoy that feeling!
Run with a partner - lets face it- long runs alone can get boring - take someone to run along with you and chat about life, running - anything, its so much easier to pass the time.
Run a new route - preferably one that has lots to look at, use it as a free exploration and enjoy the view.
Plan a nice treat when you get home - a long bath, a nice dinner - something to think about!
Think about the race - when your starting to wane think about WHY you are doing what you are doing and focus on that race day!
Take water and energy gels - I know this is pretty obvious - but god if you forget your water it could be so dangerous!
