Tonight, I ran just over 5.5k - most of it with S, one of the ladies on my K-100 team. It's really amazing how the time flies when you're with a friend - even a new one. I've run that route a zillion times at a zillion different paces and tonight it seemed to take no time at all as we chatted away the kilometers. I'm looking forward to getting in more runs with her :)
It looked like we might be running it in a downpour, but by the time we headed out the rain had tapered off to a light spit and we could just enjoy the refreshing cool of the evening. It was actually really pleasant for my first rainy run of the season!
I also got a Runner Info email from BMO Vancouver Marathon tonight and was able to go look up my bib number for race day! So, if you're out there cheering - make sure you cheer extra loud for #17113!
