Road Runner "Fun Run"

I have never belonged to a running "club" of any kind, and as most of you know, I've never really followed a training program until I started the RLRF in August. The shoe store that put on that free 5K last week does a "fun run" the first Saturday of every month. It's free AND they give you free breakfast. I'm in. And so is A. I had her at "pancakes."


She has never run wearing the fuel belt. And I kept trying to tell her that it goes in the back. She argued, so nevermind. We get to the store around 8:00, about a dozen total people there. Everyone can do their own distance, then return back for breakfast.

We "ran" about a mile, then walked most of the way back. A said the belt was annoying and made her skirt slide down (told ya so). Hung out and had coffee, juice, and pancakes. I met a lot of REALLY nice people. And surprisingly, as compared to other running crowds I talk to, I was one of the most "experienced" runners.

I think I'll be back. I like the group atmosphere. (shocked)
