Group Run

Today I met the Mckinney Running Club at Market street for our Saturday long run. Half of the running club was not there because they were running the Lady of the Lake Relay. I ran with a group of 8 girls. It was a great run. Running with other runners is so much more enjoyable. I really like running with a group on my long run for two reasons. First being the company, makes the miles go by fast. Second being that they make me stay at a comfortable pace. We ran 8.5 miles in 1 hour and 28 minutes. I think it was an average of 10:20 pace. That is slower than I have been running but I definitely enjoyed it. I wish I could run with the group a lot more but my hubby's schedule doesn't allow for that. So I will take what I can get. I am only 4 weeks away from my half marathon in August. I am looking forward to the race.

  1. You should check out my run club! It's only $20 to join and we don't do the usual every Saturday or every Sunday long runs. There's a private board on Facebook just for members where you can post when/where/what you want to run and people will almost always join you. The group I've been running with is slower than you, but there are faster girls in the club. And I'd say the majority are marathoners.
