Well Lori... I won't be running the Winter Training 10 miler again for you anytime soon! But thanks! Considering all truth I needed it- so far 10 miles is as far as I have gone this training :) I quite enjoyed myself for three reasons (1)It was a crisp morning for a run- minus the roads were extremely slick (2) I was entertained by the other runs- you can ask Amanda I enjoyed making fun of running styles for awhile (3)I WAS ABLE TO KEEP UP WITH AMANDA UNTIL MILE 8 1/2 then her tubo legs kicked into gear and I said "peace sista" but by that point in time I had made good friends with a old man and we kicked it together at a 9 minute pace. To be perfectly honest I didn't mind even coming in 3 minutes over! My legs were dying but I am just excited to be training again... I rather enjoy my love hate relationship with this sport, and overall my minute to minute time is improving so I can't complain.
P.S WHY in the 'LL are we running 2x20 milers...no one told me this! I want to speak with the management!
