A Running Reunion

Yesterday was the first “long” run of training with the group I train with. Long is in quotes because it was 7 miles. In just a few short weeks, we’ll be doing 7 miles as our “easy” Monday runs. It was a quick, fun run around the White House. The miles go by so quickly when you’re talking the whole time. I thought we’d barely started and my running partner announced we had done 2.5 miles (I couldn’t tell because my stupid Nike SportWatch couldn’t find satellites).

Getting to the store this morning felt a lot like the first day of school: people I hadn’t seen in a few weeks, some since February, some new people. It was great! I like being a part of this little community.

I’m excited to be back in training, even if it means setting an alarm on Saturday morning.
