In a few minutes, I'm going to meet with Santa (how exciting) but in the meantime I thought I'd figure out something interesting to post about.
Today Downtown D came Uptown and ran with me. We started at my house and ran past Wesleyan College. We didn't really have a distance in mind...I guess we both figured we'd run until we ran out of things to talk about...which, by the way, never happens with me. Ask Troy. He'll tell you that's the truth. Anyway, so we just ran. We got to 1.5 miles and I alerted DT D that we were approaching a turn around point. Nope, we'll just keep going to the 2 mile mark.
Beep beep we're now approaching 2 miles. Nope, let's keep going to 2.5 miles.
As we approached 2.5, DT D asked where 3 miles would be...as I pointed in the distance to a small green trashcan, she said we can run that far!
Well, when we got to 3 miles (which is the crest of a hill) I informed her that just a little bit farther (on much flatter ground) would be 3.5 miles and we could easily do that...so onward we pressed.
See how team work works out???
We finished up our 7 mile run successfully gossiping about a weeks worth of info (including Jennifer Love Hewitts "size 2" issue...plaaaaeeeezzzz!) and both decided that we enjoy running with someone rather than going solo. That's why my Friday and Tuesday runs are so much fun (there I go using the word "fun" and the word "run" in the same sentence!).
Truthfully, I'm not sure what's gotten into me lately. I'm not sure if it's the perfect running weather, the fact that this semester is finally over, or just generally feeling good, but my little running career has been taking off! I guess registering for two marathons in one month will do that to you! (One on March 1, and the other on March 31!)
This weekend Ultra Girl is running yet another marathon. It doesn't look like anyone or anything is going to stop that girl! Wish I could be there, but my mother's 61st birthday party takes priority over running....I'm sure she'll do great and the Charlotte weather should be fantastic!
Well, off to get my picture taken with Santa...about a week ago I interviewed him to see what runners should be asking for this Christmas. The interview will be posted in our local running club's monthly newsletter...when it comes out, I'll post a link to it, so you can see first hand how my journalism career was started (or maybe I should just keep my day job).
On tap for this weekend:
10 miles on Sunday...and maybe a quick run on the treadmill tomorrow morning to gear myself up for shopping...I've already run 15 miles this week, plus my 10 on Sunday, I probably deserve a rest tomorrow...
Have a great weekend!
