Saturday Evening Run over the Narrows!

I love where I live, on a SUNNY DAY!  Yah we get a lot of rain, but when the sun is out...it's A-Mazing.  Chelsea was coming to T-Town (Tacoma) for the weekend and had 8-10 miles on the schedule and needed a T-towner to do it with...that's where I came into the picture, or should I say the RUN? Well you know what I mean!  After a rainy week I was thrilled when Saturday turned out looking like this!  Don't let the clear sky fool you though...it wasn't WARM at all, but I will take the SUN with cold any day over rain.
The Tacoma Glass Museum!

I live over there...can you see it?

Met Chelsea at her mom's house where she grew up!  Got to meet all the dogs and then we were on our way.  It was fun to chat since I hadn't ever run with just Chelsea.  We ran by her high school and then onto the same trail I had run when I ran the Tacoma Narrows Half Marathon a few years ago.  I didn't realize we were going to run over the Tacoma Narrows Bridge...that was cool.  If you ever get the chance to do that...do it.  It wasn't that windy until we turned around to go back over the bridge.  The views were spectacular with the sun and the clear sky's!  Neither of us had brought are cameras...bad bloggers, we know!  They are etched in our minds now!  We headed back home and faced a hill that I didn't like when I ran the Narrows Half, but this time it wasn't as bad since I knew what to expect. 
After our run!  The best part of a run!

We chatted the entire 8 miles about running, family, food and everything else there is to talk about!  We passed another school of Chelsea's...her preschool!  Wow that seems like forever ago!  How cool to grow up in the same place your entire life...I love that.  Before we knew it we were a few blocks from the house and we pushed it all the way to the end.  It was a great evening for a run. 

I was a little worried I wouldn't make it to run since it has been a busy few days and I don't typically run in the evenings and I was tired, but I'm so glad I did.  Thank goodness for friends and running with them because I don't think I would be running much at all lately.  I'm always more happy after a run with friends and time you get when you run with them...great way to get to know each other more! 

We can tell who didn't have to drive home!

Hmm...WE really are THAT AWESOME!

Silly face...

THANK FOR A GREAT RUN Chels! Awesome job on a DISTANCE PR! You are going to do great at the RnR Seattle Half Marathon!

Way to go, girls! Nothing like some good company and SUNSHINE for a great run! And I LOVE taking my shoes off the instant I am done running.

So cool to run over the bridge! You two are crack-ups. I know because I've run with you both. Lucky me! :)
