Go Over THERE

I love love that Kerrie HERE and I are 1.25 miles apart. I run from my office, trying to time it just right, to pick her up, we run together, I drop her off, then run back...

This is how it went Yesterday:

I had 3 miles fast and 3 slower today so I set out to do 2 fast before I RAN to pick up Kerrie. It was HOT, well hot for me, and I was thirsty, I ditched my gloves and ear warmer at .25, I have not bee in tune with the weather lately.

Mile 1- 7:52, Mile 2- 7:53

Zoomed to get Kerrie totally parched and flemy(SP). So nice to chat with my buddy. We went the opposite route from usual to mix it up. Not too many people out but did see my buddy Zen Runner fresh back from her Honeymoon. I let Kerrie set the pace and settled in for the ride, at one point she was feeling tired and realized we were going pretty fast..so we slowed back down. Kerrie is getting speedy soon it will be tough to slow her down :)

Mile 3- 9:15, Mile 4- 9:03, Mile 5- 9:27

Dropped Kerrie off and was solo for the last bit.. UGH!! Sped back up for the last mile, SOOOOOOO THIRSTY!! SOOOOOO HARD!! I am not in speedwork shape at all but it felt good to push the pace and get my sweat on.

Mile 6- 8:57, Mile 7- 7:51

Love the sun, could have run in a tank top :) My 6 mile on plan turned to a 7 miler, which was fab. We are going to run together again today, but alas i think we may get rained on, but what do I know I have guessed wrong on the weather every day.. THANKS KERRIE!!

You are a lucky ducky! A solo run and a friend run all in the same run. Score!

So nice it works out for you 2 to run together during the week.
Are you doing the Lake Samm Half this weekend? I'm meeting up with a couple other ladies at the bathrooms in Marymoor around 7:15-730 before we catch the shuttle to the start. See you there?
