Today I hit the dreadmill at the gym. As luck would have it, I had a meeting at the kids' school this morning and there was another lady there who intended to hit the treadmills at the same gym. Score! Another buddy for the gym. It is so much easier to run with someone next to me. So thanks Emily for the run. I started in thinking 6 miles was a good number. As I hit just over 5, right about when Emily was finished with her training (for her first half marathon!), another friend, Amie, showed up at the gym. Score 2. And since she was there, I just decided to keep going. Made it to about 7 and then decided to pull it back, and just walked another 2. So I got in a solid 7 mile run and a good 2 mile walk. Not bad for a Monday morning.
