Fit 4 Fun Thursday: Swim at Your Own Risk!

I think I have my stride back! Last night was my normal run group 5k at my local Fit2Run store! Can I just say how much I LOVE and OBSESSED with this store and the people that work there? I have met so many neat and very cool runners over the past couple months runner with this group of people.

It has been almost a month since I have been to a Wednesday night Fit2Run Fun Run. I was there a week before I left for California. So it was so nice to see all my friends I haven't seen in a while. I almost didn't go because it literally had been raining and lightning since 2:30 PM. But I got dressed and headed to my run club

This Wednesday was super fun because it was a beach themed run. So I pulled out my bikini and wore it over my running clothes! It was really awesome if I do say so myself. This week was a lazy week for some people because it was raining so they skipped. Basically not our usual crowd. But I did make a new friend though! Her name is Jill and she is a local runner and LOVED runDisney like me! I know she and I will be fast friends!

It was also nice to hang out and see my favorite running buddy and store manager Kimmi. She and I ran the entire course together doing 5:2 intervals. 5 mins easy run, 2 mins speed run. It was a littler different than I normally run but so glad I hung back with her!

What I found the most freeing was that I had no music, no watch and no interval timer and it was raining. There are all things I had never done before. I think it got me centered again. Right where I need to be.

I feel great after my running tonight. I hope I won't be sore in the morning, but I don't mind if I am because I think I have my stride back.

Until next time everyone! 

QOTD: Did you get in any mileage yesterday or today?

I ran 3.1 yesterday around my neighborhood, but I misjudged the temperature and over I am resting for my first half marathon on Saturday :-). I wish we had a store like that here with a running group! Our closest one is over 30 minutes away. Hopefully we will have one someday, and until then I will continue to turn my friends into runners to go out with me...
