If you were in Washington this morning or Tacoma and you ran...wasn't it perfect! I woke up at 7am so I could get ready and be at Ruston Way by 8am to meet up with, Jill. Looking outside won't tell you what the temperature is so I had to check and was shocked to read 51 deg....wow isn't it January? Yes and I will take it and not layer as much knowing that I could get too hot. Got to Ruston before Jill well actually I pulled up next to someone thinking it was Jill and waved and realized that is not Jill! A little embarrassing...oh well. Took a few pictures of the view that we would enjoy on our run! Jill got there and we started our run with a little walking warm up and then started running at a faster pace than I have been running lately...looked at my watch and we were at a 9:30 pace...not bad since this is a flat run. A mile into the run I realized my Garmin had not started, SHOOT! I am a numbers girl so this is so annoying to me and the first time I have ever done that....oh well now I have to guess on my totals. It was a great run with Jill while we caught up on our holidays and what’s been happening. The funny thing about running with someone is you end up talking a lot about running. Let's face it, all of us runners can become a little obsessed or maybe I am the only one. Jill ran her first marathon last year in Portland and she trained with Team in Training. She loved it and I love picking her brain about her training and the whole marathon experience. Trying to get her to do the Rock and Roll with me in June but she is a busy teacher getting her masters so not sure her schedule will allow it...but come on Jill when you have run a marathon...what’s another one, right...piece of cake! We finished our run and walked up to the Old Town Starbucks and had some tea and coffee and did some stretching and more chatting. I love mornings like this...perfect. Looking forward to more runs with Jill and more training advice. Great run with a great friend!
