I managed to sneak out of the house this morning
although nobody was really happy about it to meet up with the Frankfort Running Club. I knew that I wanted to run at least 8 and it had been pouring rain + high winds during the night; however, we experienced a bit of a break this morning. For me, it’s just best to get a run out of the way before the excuses start to accumulate early.
I was very pleased to pull in and see lots of
warm bodies people to keep me company. Meet the Frankfort Running Club – Sunday Crew. From left to right: Susan, Dave, Diane, Angela, Don, Brian, Kate, Suzanne, Kelly, & Nicole.
We got lucky
again with the weather, another 40 degree day. We had a little drizzle too but certainly nothing like I would normally expect for November, just enough to screw up blur the photos.
We ran Old Plank Trail heading west.
The group members for today averaged between 6 and 8 miles at varying paces. A very reasonable group for all types of runners. I would strongly encourage even newer runners to
have the guts give it a shot with this group because they are very diverse, not too INTENSE low key and really friendly. Susan & Don here as they bailed called it at the six mile mark:
The seven mile group coming back at me with a quick
bluring pace, plus the drizzle was starting to get serious at this point, run fast and get back to your cars!After this group passed me, I took a few more photos finished up. I ran 8.06 miles in 1:19.18 with loads of stops for photos, road crossings and time to chat with those at the front and the back. I never stop my watch while we are out there because I am too blonde would forget to restart it. So once we leave the initial parking lot, I just let it roll, the time isn’t too important to me anyhow. I’m mostly out there for the experience.
Great day. Great run.
“Run”way Fashion: It was all about Athleta today unless we count my Hot Chocolate windbreaker. Ironically, Athleta is also having a sale.
