Corie and I have known each other for years... She is a teacher and Mary Kay phenom. And now that I have moved she lives just 3 miles away.. We planned, via text to meet up for a LONG run. With recent hip issues, she is just getting back into the swing of running. She is training for the Kona Marathon.
We set out on a RAINY day to journey through the small town of Buckley. I LOVE LOVE LOVE running in new areas, it is a special treat, especially with someone who knows where to go.
This run did not disappoint with Deer, Elk, and 8-10 adorable yellow birds hopping along a fence. The miles passed quickly with great conversation and years to catch up on. The rain poured down, my stomach seized and my left calf muscle was on fire.... Needless to say when we rounded the corner to Corie's house at 13.1 I was done for the day. I felt like a slacker cutting my 18 miler short, but I was done..
We finished 13.1 in just over 2 hours!! Pretty good for a training run. We were soggy and my hair was GROSS!! I look forward to many many miles with Corie in the future. Oh and I failed to mention Corie's hubby is an Ironman. So possibly running with him as well.
- Wow oh wow there are soooo many Blogs to read so I must depart. But you are in LUCK!! Today is a 2 Blog day. I will be back TONIGHT, after I watch LOST so don't tell me what happened, to post a GIVEAWAY. Think Compression.
