Clea, Steph, and I met up for a run this morning. I am tapering for Way Too Cool, so I knew I wasn't going to run 20. Somehow, not very hard, I convinced them to go 17 with me. We had a great time. We realized that the last time we were on the trail, all three of us, was last year training for Miwok. Steph has been on the trail as little as possible since, and has continued her love for the roads...not to mention the ease with her schedule. Clea and I have gotten in many short runs, but nearly enough over 10 on the trail lately. So today was a good one!
We started at 6:30 this morning, and I must admit with a number of groups training on the trail this spring that might become my standard...if not earlier. Clea and Steph think my "early start of 6:30" is kind of funny because they start earlier everyday and even on the weekends. I try to make them start as late as I possibly can.
I was very well-intended on taking pics after the run,had my camera in the car, but the wind was roaring and we were all chilled. Soon enough we will be running in as little as possible and plenty warm enough to stand around after a run and chat.
All around it was a great morning: good run, good company, and fun seeing our other friends on the trail. Although, the sun didn't come out until we were finished. I am ready for spring to come and stay.
