Believe it or not, I decided to cut the excuses, mostly because I reminded myself how much I LOVED my "Christmas Lights Run" last week. (aka running at night in my parents' suburban neighborhood and admiring christmas lights) To keep myself from backing out, I texted one of my best friends who just got back in town for winter break and asked him to join me. Yay for running buddies! My wonderful friend Scott is WAY faster than I am (he finished our Turkey Trot light years ahead of me...), but as he's nursing an injury, he was up for an easy few miles with me at my pitiful pace. (You know someone's a real friend when they're willing to slow down their pace like crazy to run with you!)
So far my plan to keep running outside this winter is going well! We'll see what happens when the serious snow starts... :) In other happy news, LAST DAY OF SCHOOL TOMORROW!!!
Would you slow down your pace to run with a friend once in awhile? Personally I'm sooo slow that the opportunity doesn't come up too often!!! And I never really expect anyone to run as slow as me! So it was a nice treat :)
Do you run outside in the winter? Last winter I ran outside a total of maybe three times, so I definitely set the bar low in terms of topping that this winter!
