The kids had swimming lessons and I get to sit out and enjoy the warmth of the sun. I really do think I live in the wrong state. I had a thought the other day when I was walking out of work. Every day that it is warm when I leave work I step outside in honestly say to myself "Oh my God I love this!" Then it hit me that every day that it's cold outside when I leave work I think "Fuck I hate this!" Seriously I swear a lot more in the winter. Also when I run.
Last night I ran with the Fleet Feet group for the first time in months! I was missing it bad but the kids had soccer on Tuesday nights so I had to miss it until this week when soccer was finally over.
I have officially made it enough miles with the group to earn my first reward.
If you have a local running group, get with them. They are great. I am also part of the Pace Setters and they have a great training run that they put on every Saturday morning. They have routes set up for people training for the Fox Cities half and full marathon and they have water and Gatorade out on the route at several locations. It makes it much easier to not have to worry about getting in electrolytes when your long runs get up past the 10 mile mark.

I know when you first start thinking about joining a group to run it's intimidating. I used to always think "I'm not fast enough." That has never been an issue. You have fast runners and not as fast runners and we all finish it out.
Do you run with a running group?
Are you part of a running club?
