10 miles at the Vertical Runner Tryptophan Run. The first 4 miles were with Joy; then I did 2 miles with Joy and Rob:
|We aren't sweating; we are glowing.|
|In other words, he tried to kill me.|
|You can't tell because she is wearing sunglasses, but her eyes are googly-wide, just like mine.|
On Thursday evening, I decided to try something different: I ran with the Crooked River Trail Runners. They are a crazy bunch who meet at the Brandy Wine Clubhouse in Peninsula to run trails at night. Kelleigh promised me she would guide me, so I gave it a go. Luckily for us, there was Mark on the trails to help us when we got confused and basically started bushwhacking our own trail. I loved that run! Running at night jazzes me; I feel so full of energy running in the dark, even after a full, exhausting day of work. After that run, I went home and signed up officially for club membership. I'm telling you this now because if you never hear from me again, it's because I got lost on a Thursday night run.
|Kelleigh and I are a bit rosy-cheeked after our run/trailblazing.|
|Here is Marta at one of the stream crossings. We were lucky that it wasn't thigh-deep, like it was during the race!|
|And here we are at the finish. This is EXACTLY how I look when I am more than relieved to be done.|
Are you looking for new challenges? What are you doing to enjoy your workouts? Whatever it is, I hope you run happy, Peeps!
