National Running Day? Say what? Is this our version of a “Hallmark Holiday”? If so, hubby forgot to get me that new running skirt that I’ve been eyeing! Hmph! Anyhow, I was fortunate enough that this National Day of Running fell on a Wednesday so I was already penciled in with the run club for a few miles. John, Susan, Me & Ken:
These 3 are my solid WED night crew. They show up when it’s cold, rainy & even when it’s hot! Last night was overcast and threatening rain so I think that scared a “few” people away. Ironically, we didn’t talk much about running on this “holiday”. Total Run Nerd fail. What was our main topic of conversation? Bikes.
It seems summer has brought all of us a bit of “bike fever”. We dream of
hammering riding down the trail with the wind at our backs and just enjoying some cross training to give our run legs a break. Bike fever has several member of the F’N Running Club shopping for new bikes. Super exciting! As a result, we will be starting a group cycle. So if you see us coming your way on a Friday morning, maybe just get out of the way. Most of us have new bikes. We are learning how to clip in and out of pedals. Some of us are triathletes who “road bikers” find notoriously inexperienced and unsafe. So yeah, if you see us coming, protect yourself because it’s all fun and games for us. WhooooHoooooo! And if you’re looking for some fun then bring your bike out on a Friday morning. We’ll try not to knock you over as we domino to the ground trying to stop at the next stop sign!
