The Amazing Jill at Running 2 Sanity HERE posted about how CLOSE she was to her 1,000th mile for the year. I had plans to run about 10 miles with Tammy and Heidi so I invited Jill via text, it was a bit early and out of the way, so I changed plans to run with Jilly. And I thought it would be AWESOME to run 10.26 to get to 1,000!!!
Me and my Little Buddy Jilly... I was a little tired but found my energy once I saw Jill's smile..
She grew :) It was a chilly day, but the cool air felt nice. I forgot my Garmin in the car so I let Jill be the watch woman.. it was nice not to have to worry about speed, distance, time, etc. The miles passed quickly, always do with good friends. I did not once feel tired. The run was truly EFFORTLESS... Like our legs were moving and we were not paying any attention. 10 miles is by FAR my favorite distance. I would run 10 milers every weekend, I LOVE IT!!
Other than a guy walking 2 dogs who flipped off the car that did not let him cross the road (really buddy??), there was not too much notable on the path. We had planned to reward our efforts with STARBUCKS, always nice to know there is a reward at the end.. We hit 10.3, gave a quick high five and a nice hug!! CONGRATS JILL!! Jill had a steamy forehead, I joked about writing 1,000 on it, until she came up with this GEM to mark the occasion..
I truly hope you can see the 1,000 in the photo.. We are total hams and we like it!! Starbucks was packed so I scoped out some COZY chairs while Jill got the warm drinks and much NEEDED water. What a WONDERFUL way to start the weekend..
- How was your weekend? Anything fun happen??
