Going longish...

This morning I got up at 4:45am.
On a Saturday.
To run, of course :)

I started the run with some crazy ladies who were heading out for a fun 20 miler.
By crazy, I obviously mean crazy awesome.

My slow and steady plan had me doing 8 miles today.
I kinda felt like a big wimp ;).

So I ran with them for the first 4.5 miles.
Mostly all downhill.
Then I said see ya and turned myself around and headed back.
Up all the hills we had just ran down.
SO much fun.

Not complaining, really.
The crazy 20 mile runner ladies had to run all those big hills, too...
at the back end of those 20 miles.
Those are some tough girls

9.5 miles done, no pain.
The last half was so slow- but so good to be out there. 

I was done nice and early-
then went and unloaded fruits and vegetables at my
Bountiful Basket pick-up site.
After a few boxes, I was mildly regretting that 9 mile run.
It was more of a workout than I anticipated.

Now my Saturday workout(s) are done...
and I can sit on my butt the rest of the day.
At soccer games.

I am glad you made it back safe and sound!!! I should have turned around with you...my quads would have thanked me! I am glad you are back up and running. I am sure there will be many more good times ahead!

Nine and a half PAIN FREE miles, that's AWESOME! I'm so happy for you!
I'm so jealous that you have people to run with - I only have one running friend, and she's way too fast for me to run with, you two could hang though:)
