Running with Friends

This weekend I had two totally great runs.

My first was Sat. morning at 6:30 with my running buddies from the WAC. I am amazed at how fast my run goes when I am talking with other people. It is also cool running with a group. We got to support one of our runners to complete her longest run yet. She was so thrilled and that excitement is contagious.

My second run was on Sun. I met Chris, a friend you can read about over at http://www.rsqboss.blogspot.com. We met in between our homes in a town near the shore and just ran wherever our spirit moved us. He has a garmin so we could keep track without getting too lost or going too far. It was soooo fun. Again I was amazed at how fast the run went when you don't know where you are going and it is an adventure. I have to thank Chris because he gave me a piggyback ride over a cut of ocean so I wouldn't have to get my new sneakers wet. Very cool friend.

How fun. It's been such a long time since I had a piggy back ride.

Great weekend! A bet that piggy back ride was a mini adventure :-)

Running with others makes the time go by much faster and it is nice to socialize and run at the same time. It's also nice to run with someone wearing a Garmin so you can just run wherever and then have your mileage when you're all finished. Sounds great!
