Let me first say, that my local running club is really pretty awesome. Every day of the week there is some group run, speedwork, hill repeats, or long running going on. Tonight I joined one of the groups for their Thursday evening run. I was a little intimidated because I knew the people that I was running with were all faster than me. But, once I got there (and got lost...you would think I wasn't from this town or something), everyone was so friendly and nice and just made me feel like I was part of the club. I kept up with them until the 1.5 mile mark and decided that it was time for me to turn around, while they kept on going. I vowed that next week I'd take them up on the whole route. The weather was beautiful, the company was great, and it just made me realize how truly lucky I am each and every day!
Have a great Friday!
