We headed out to the BWI Trail and only planned for a couple of miles, which worked well with the suggestions from my father in law and was good for my friend since she was just starting to run again. We ran at a conversational pace (I have never tried to carry on a conversation while running since I run solo) and it was so nice to have a leisurely run. I usually just do training runs, and while I enjoy that, it was nice to take it easy and just enjoy being outside (75 and sunny) and the company. We took a couple of walking breaks because of my hip (grrrr) but it was good run to ease back into it after a few days off.
I am excited because I have training buddies now! My friend and her husband are both signed up for the Army Ten Miler (
I am hoping to get to Charm City Run this afternoon to get a gait analysis and look at some new shoes. Hopefully, Katye and I can finally meet up and go out for a test run in my new shoes!
There are only 9 days until the Cherry Blossom 10 Miler. We are getting into the single digits now and I am so excited and nervous at the same time! The extended weather forecast looks awesome for race day so keep your fingers crossed for the 66* and partial cloudy day.
Hope you all get to enjoy some beautiful weather this weekend and get some good runs in!
