Early Morning Runs with a Friend are the Best!

We were blessed with my favorite kind of weather today and I was able to spend a few hours of it running with a friend. We are both coming back from some low mileage months and we were quite happy to achieve a 16 miler in under 3 hours . Good weather really helps! We ran on a paved path through trees along a creek because the trails were a bit too wet after a couple of rainy days mid-week. Texas is already having Spring-like rains and blustery wind mixed with 30s and , last week, upper 70s! Can’t change it so you just run through it!

I felt so much better after today’s run compared to last Friday’s 14 mike slower run. I got very dehydrated that day from the high humidity. Today I was sure to take some electrolytes since I am prone to that, even in low humidity. But I only needed two gels for the whole run which is quite amazing for me. I felt good and we kept a pretty consistent pace with only two short walk breaks . Our next race is February 20, Jackalope Jam, which I ran last year . This year I’m signed up for the 24 hour instead of 12. My training isn’t great but I’ll get as many miles as I can in that time . I’m thankful for good friends and running and good weather! Isn’t that beautiful?! The temperature was low 40s at the start. Happy weekend!
