|We look a little better here than after the Warrior Dash, huh?|
Of course it was absolutely pouring. Thankfully it stopped at some point, I'm not even really sure when, maybe 3-4 miles in? Once you are wet you don't even really notice it anymore so it's hard to remember. I was only planning on doing 6.5 miles since we'd been out later and it stormed in the middle of the night so Sidney kept me up for quite a while...but somehow I ended up doing 9.5 instead. This is one reason I love the running group - incentive and motivation to do more and push yourself. I did start out slower with a friend, but she turned back and mile 3 or 4 then I ended up with some other friends. I eventually ended my run with new people and much faster than I had anticipated. I am very happy that I have continued to push myself and not let people hold me back. I hope I can keep that up!
This morning was absolutely gorgeous and Marc and I headed up for a bike ride. We rode from our place to Loveland, picked up the trail for a bit, then took the roads back to our place. Coming home from Loveland was HILLY! I was never so happy to see Montgomery Road. We ended up at 24.25 miles, which is the farthest Marc has ever ridden!
