New friends!

"Run hard, be strong, think big!" - Percy Cerutty

Today was our new season of training for the running group I'm We start up every 6 months with new training. Well, all of us who are running the Mardi Gras half and full are still on the old training schedule. So we all had to get to the group meeting earlier than usual this morning. The newbies were running 3 and we had to run 8! I started off running by myself which I don't like to do since it's still dark but my fellow Disney half runner was ahead of me and I could see him when I started out. After following our route a little, I lost him and I got scared so of course, I was running faster than usual. I knew that would hurt me later. Before too long, I came across a group of 3 girls who I've talked to and seen around in the past...they have been in the running group since July like me. I decided to slow down and tag behind them for a least until it got daylight. I'm so glad I did! As I was slowing down, this creepy looking character passed us up on the sidewalk. That's why I HATE running by myself before daylight! So the girls turned around and saw me and we started talking and that was it! We ran the rest of the way together! YAY! Another guy along the route asked us if we had any cash to spare! Seriously...I've NEVER had this problem before but I'm glad I was with other girls and not by myself! It was nice running with them, too cause they kept a really good pace and it felt good!! Now we are all Facebook buddies! lol! I felt really good after the 8 miles! Not too tired and my joints didn't ache too bad! After the run, I drove over to Smoothie King and got a smoothie! Now I'm home, I'm showered, and I'm ready to start the day! I LOVE Saturdays!!!


  1. I went to smoothie king this morning, too! good job on the runy. This is why I cant run outside beforye work...its dark and I am chicken!

  2. ME TOO! I never run early in the mornings unless it's with the group! Too dark!!!

  3. Awesome job on the run today! That is exactly how I felt when that guy asked me if I wanted a ride because it was so cold outside!!

  4. Congrats on a great run and thank goodness for running buddies. Sometimes I wish I had a good running group around me so that I could have someone to run with.

    Congrats on completing the Disney Half! What a messy day huh?!
