Running just as fast as we can,
Holdin' onto one another's hand
Anyone else think of Tiffany's "I Think We're Alone Now" while running?
No? No one? That's alright! I'm used to being alone on many things. :P
I woke up this morning thinking I'd be taking this morning's 4-miler nice and easy. THEN I wake up to see my friends are killin' it at the Disneyland 10k. My friend Justin crushed the race in 49:36 (7:59 min/mile pace). While he was a bit disappointed in his time, I used it as inspiration for mine.
So I went out and let the legs run as fast as they wanted to go. The resulting splits: 8:29, 7:59, 7:57, 7:10. Ohhh yeah I'll take that on a Saturday morning. Thanks for the push Justin - even from the other side of the country.
Since I am in a running sort of mood (I know not shocking), I thought I would post a little recap post of the running clubs, group runs and discount codes floating around my brain!
For my Boston area peeps, the She Runs Boston run club I am a part of has seven Tuesday runs left for the season. We meet every Tuesday at Athleta on Newbury St. We have a 3 mile and a 4 mile option - both begin at 6:30pm. Free runs. All paces welcome: run, run/walk, or walk. This club will finish up the 2015 season on October 20. No pre-registration needed. Just show up with a smile. :) We have a sweep to make sure no one is left behind.
Additionally, the Slumbrew Happy Soles will still be offering monthly free 5k runs out of the Beer Garden (American Fresh at Assembly Row) and the new Brewery (in Union Sq, Somerville). I also act as sweep to make sure no one is left behind.
September runs will be held:
** If you are looking to take part in The Dani Ryan Holmes-Kirk 4th Annual 30th Birthday 5k Run-Walk Ramble to #FightStroke, I will be completing mine that night!
In preparation of the ZOOMA Women's Half & 10k Cape Cod (September 26), I will be co-hosting at 5 or 10 mile training run ONE WEEK FROM TODAY!! On September 12, we will meet at 7am and start the run by 7:15am out of City Sports in Harvard Square.
There will be one 5-mile loop that you will either complete once or twice! :) We will have water and Luna Bars at the home base (aka City Sports). Again all paces welcomed!
