It felt good to start early for the Saturday run. The sky was completely covered in clouds, the temperatures were low and there was a light breeze in the air.
Picked up my pace to sub-10 to finish a 10K under an hour. Was feeling really good about my pace till a couple with a dog raced past me. I have obviously seen a lot of fast runners. But what deflated me was the dog looking back as it passed me from my left and giving that “You call that running?” look with a smirk as big as a grin…
Ran into the good old Chalupa group towards the end.
For the first time did motorbiking on the highways in the dark. Reached Stone Mountain way before sunrise and hiked it to the top with Ashish! After climbing down, he suggested we do it one more time – and we did! Went back to the top of the mountain for another round. I am glad we had started early. It had started becoming real hot when we got done…
Not much of an evening runner. Not much of a runner on concrete either. Cut it short after a few miles.
Lia organized it but unfortunately had to leave early due to a knee injury. Ran most of the 10Kish distance with Valerie. It seems like I put in a run with Val once every 3 years or so!! Was great to catch up with her. Also got to meet another runner – Susan. She stayed back to do 20 miles (32K). That is some tenacity!!
It has been judged the best place to live in – in the state of Georgia!! Check out the USA Today article from this morning…
Dan covered 4 miles in the same time that I covered 3 miles!!
I am by myself with Mother Nature. age is not making the runs any less painful but there is something about connecting with nature …
It was humid in the dirt roads of Milton. First a 5K with her and then another 5K by myself in the Big Creek Greenway.
