Dental appointments, errands and schoolwork with my son (we homeschool) kept me very busy today. So, when 3:00 rolled around I decided to take a nap. It was a bad move! I woke up an hour later and felt more tired than before! Not good considering I had a group run at 6:00. Never the less, I put my shoes on and persevered. Being with a group of other great runners always helps!
Today’s run was for 30 minutes and it was hot. We ran the west side of the trail which has big hills. I started out too fast, but managed to find my pace and get my breathing under control. Despite the heat I managed to run the entire time and kept a 12:50 pace which is good for me! Little by little I am getting faster!
Today was also my best friend’s birthday! So, naturally I had to get her a birthday girl ribbon to wear while she ran! She was a good sport!
It is great to have a friend to run with even though I can not keep up with her! Having my husband running with me is even better! I can not keep up with him either! 🙂
After running we celebrated my friend’s birthday, grilling chicken fajitas and eating birthday cupcakes. Hey, we earned those calories!
By the way, I am not in any of the pictures because I was taking them!
