Early morning.... I was excited because I was meeting with 2 ladies from the local running group. I met them through running! That is the great thing about running... you get to meet new people all the time!!! Whether it be at a local race or perhaps a race that you traveled for.....
Anyway, these 2 ladies were kind enough to invite me along.... this morning they were planning on 10 miles. The route they planned actually circled back to our cars after 5.6miles. Therefore, due to time restraints because of working today, I made the 5.6 miles and had to leave. Definitely a bummer because I had a blast running with these ladies!!! The conversation made the 5.6 miles fly by!!!! I have been pretty much a solo runner since I started.... and during short runs and speed work, that is ok. However, sometimes the solo thing can be tough on longer runs. Plus, I really think I tend to be more of a social runner and like to have people running with me. That is why I run a great deal of the local races. I think I get pushed with others around.... whether it be running faster during a 5K distance or simply running longer distance. Having others around just seems to make you do more than you usually plan. Plus, with others, the time goes by super fast!!!
I have been invited for next Sunday morning and can't wait!!!!
MIle 3 11:46
Mile 4 11:49
MIle 5 11:41
and then an additional 0.6mile 6:42
I sure wish I could have continued, but I had to stop to get back home and get some errands performed prior to going to work. But, that is ok, there is next weekend!!! :)
AND!!! The weather was great!!!! Little cool at first, but we warmed up quick!
So, why I was at work, Ben went to a friend's birthday party!!! He had a blast!!! There was a bounce house with water flowing..... and as Ben said, "It was super fun!" This is the best picture I could mustard since my photographer (who will remain nameless for this post) only took video. LOL! I left the photographer with one simple request... to snap one picture! Just one!! LOL!!! Nope! only video! So, I paused the video and took a picture of my computer screen in order to get this picture!!! LOL!!!! Remember my post a few days back?!? Always have some sort of plan B!!!!!! HA! HA! Oh well!!! My photographer took my son to the party where he had a blast, so I really can't complain..... LOL!!!
Well, I have to get things ready for Monday!!! Lunches to be made and such......
Have a great rest of the day!!!! Until later.........
How was your Sunday?
Solo or group running? or both?!
