After stretching and a quick self portrait I had ZERO CLUE what time it was.. So I set out and planned to be a little early. It was RAINY AND WINDY AND COLD AND YUCKY AND GROSS AND NOT SO FUN TO RUN IN ;) Thankfully after 1.33 miles I would have a buddy to share in my misery. I passed her office to get in 1.5 miles then waited to stretch..
Say Hello to my little Lunch Running friends. I LOVE my Pearl Izumi W Syncro Float IV HERE. The shoes are light, comfortable and cute. From Pearl Izumi...
Raising the bar again, the new syncroFloat® IV runs and feels better than ever. With a touch of support for the mild pronator, this is a smooth, well cushioned and responsive shoe for the efficient runner.
The shoes do run a little tight so if you are interested be sure to go up a half size or more. I hid behind the tree to stretch since I was so early and out came my buddy..
We opted for a pre-run photo.. This was take #3...one day I plan to post all of the outtake photos, they are CLASSIC!! Did I mention that is was RAINY, WINDY AND COLD?? Oh I think I did. One stretch of our run is ultra miserable so we joked about how the rain was helping our skin glow and the wind was doing wonders for our hair. Anything to pass the time.. Kerrie had the fun idea to do some Running photos on our favorite plank bridge. Bummer because my Cell phone camera only makes small images, but I think she did pretty good :)
On the route we have been doing I cross this .25 bridge 4 times and it is BEAUTIFUL. The bridge wiggles through a swampy marsh with a big birds nest and pretty trees. Next up I needed to test my skills at photos while running, mind you this is all in preparation for Boston and 333% necessary for my training ;)
What better way to make what could have been a MISERABLE Run fantastic. We laughed, chatted and before I knew it I was dropping her off. One run closer to Boston :)
- In case you noticed the title of the Post let me explain.... I wore this jacket on a run about a week ago and it did not get too sweaty so I left it in my locker at work.. Well it was SMELLY!!! I warned Kerrie not to Hug me.. But she didn't seem to mind, yep that is what good running buddies are for.
- Tonight I have a DATE with Bloggy Runner buddies to see My Run, a stroy about 75 consecutive Marathons in 75 Days, Running on the BIG SCREEN FOLKS!!! SO EXCITED. Don't Miss out. Go HERE to see if it is playing in a theater near you tonight.
