Yesterday, two firsts. First, I ran with a group of gals that I met in the book club I joined last year. So, first time for me running with people outside of a race. It was so much fun, 3.5 miles while chatting and laughing goes by incredibly quickly! I did find it a challenge to talk and run, but I’m sure I’ll get used to it.
Second, we ran through the trails in our local arboretum. Oh my goodness, was it beautiful!! If I had been alone I would have so many pictures to share, but I didn’t want to slow down the whole group stopping for pictures. But I wish I had taken at least one!! The leaves are starting to change, mostly it has a light green/golden look, with a few fire red or orange trees mixed in. When they all change, it will be breathtaking.
I have to say- I had so much fun running with a group. Trails are a little harder, with the sand and the hills, but the extra challenge makes it more interesting, and with the company it went by so fast.
We’re going to meet up at least once a week to run together until the snow falls, and I am thrilled to finally have some running partners!!! Yey! And after the snow falls- we might be snowshoeing or cross country skiing. Awesomeness!!!!
