It's hard to want to go running when it's cold and rainy outside. Even Grace is kind of like "what?" when we run in the rain.
It's pretty lucky that I have a group of local runners who are super nice that I run with a couple of time a week.
Shout out: Club Oly!
They run Tues, Wed, Thurs,
They have a couple of trainers and TONS of experience in running marathons that I get access to as well. One of the ladies who run ran Boston this past year! And another guy has participated in a Relay Race before so I picked his brains on how to prepare for that event (July 23-24)
The people in the group are super nice and even though most of them are faster than I am, I have never felt like I was slowing the group down or somehow less of a runner than them...which is cool.
Last night we did 5 miles but the regular loop in reverse so we got to run up this kind of baby hill that everyone else said was huge- but it ment I got some "Hill" work in and for that I was happy.
Not as happy as I was to finally see the sun though! Yay! running in the sunshine is such an awesome feeling...when it's not super hot:)
I did have to hit the bathroom when I got there and take off my running tights before we started though. Grace kidn of wigged when I left her with the group for my quick change, which made me feel kind of good- she isn't in the least bit subtle that she preferes Jason over me, so it was nice to feel a bit wanted:)
P.S I forgot my Garmin, and have no idea what pace I ran, but guess about a 9 minute pace, maybe a bit faster.
