Today I joined two friends for an out & back run of 18 miles. I ran with my regular running partner and her trainer friend joined us. This woman is very fit, about 15 years younger than me and turns out – a great pacer!
She liked to run on the gravel side of the path, and I found that her cadence is similar to mine. So I’d listen to the crunch crunch crunchof her shoes on the gravel as I envisioned my VFF covered feet landing light as a feather on the tarmac.
This picture is from a couple weeks ago, but in the same area:
We didn’t see him out this morning. It was overcast for the first hour or so, and then very sunny the last bit.
I need to remember my small camera on runs. There are so many interesting things to see while running. Walkers, Roller-bladers, runners, and some guy on a self-propelled three-wheel stand up trike contraption.
My friend S. is training up for her first full marathon in October. She ran with me while I was training for mine, and I am happily returning the favor. Albeit in my Vibrams. Every new long distance is a new Personal Best for me in the Five Fingers.
Next week we’re scheduled to run 13 miles, so we’re going to join a local half marathon event to do it in! This will be my first official race in the VFFs and I’m looking forward to it
Here’s our path on the map today. I’m using my phone for GPS tracking, but still really really REALLY want a Garmin 205 Forerunner!
