To sum up my weekend in Running
and was just plain WET!!
But I didn't let the weather get my down...as my Brooks hat says I "Run Happy". And it is always nice to have friends to enjoy the journey with.. Fleet Feet Group shot pre-run.. Laura and Phil (on the right) were out for a long run, we all started together then spread out.. Janna (aka Lioness), Carol-Ann (aka Tink) and I kept together, yes I am much much taller than my "pocket running buddies." I realized that I made up both of their nicknames...need a nickname?? Call Tall Mom :)
I was low energy again, but kept the pace with my little buddies. Until my right arch cramped, OUCH!!! Thankfully after about a mile the cramp released and I was back to pace. We dropped Janna so she could go to work and headed on to finish 10 miles..
Tink HERE has been my buddy for the most miles by far this year, she ran Tacoma City Marathon last weekend and did AMAZING!! I was worried that 10 miles would be tough for her but she rocked it out.. I am trying to stay in Half Marathon shape for Rock N Roll Seattle, so 10 miles was a good distance..
Mother's Day morning it rained AGAIN, I met Amy and her friend Christie for 7 miles on the trail. We had never run with Christie, she was super nice!! The pace was much slower than I was used to. It is strange to change pace by 2++ minutes my stride was very different. Today I am am very sore and I think it is because I was using different muscles. Always nice to run with new people!! I missed Amy so catching up was GREAT!! It is time to start planning out the Rock N Roll Half Marathon outfits!!
After the soggy run I got cleaned up and met my Tall Family for Brunch which was AMAZING, warm scones and mimosas... Then Hubby brought the boys and we all went Bowling, I am horrible at Bowling but I always have such FUN!! Great Mothers Day!!
