Happy Surprises

Today was our club's group run. We started at the ungodly hour of 5:15, heading off planning a variety of distances depending on what marathon you were doing or not doing in my case. We ran a new route for me and I had no idea what the roads were like to run on and just chugged it out the best I could, which was not very fast, but good enough. I thought I was doing about seven or eight miles and then my watch read 7:15 and I was like whoa, I know I am going slower than all those other people running way ahead of me, but eight miles in two hours is a little extreme. But I was happily surprised when I measured it on mapmyrun.com and it read 11.65 miles, WHOOPIE FOR ME! It was like ordering a small sundae and the waiter bringing you a large one! I was psyched.

Nice job, Beth. I was trying to think up a clever analogy related to your business but couldn't come up with anything.

I love it when I accidentally run more than I had planned on. And yes, 5:15 is early.

Yes...imagine my surprise when I calculated that my planned 22 miles was actually 23.50 miles.

Good running Beth. And next time, I promise I'll loop back for you. =)

Nice job, Beth is it ;-) That's a tremendous run! I would be psyched too, and I can't wait for my mileage to get there!

Sorry I missed you guys but I'm not sorry I wasn't seeing 5:15!
