Awesome Run with an Awesome Friend

Today, I met up with JS at Eau Claire bright and early.  No real plan since neither of us are in training, but we figured between 8 and 10k would be good (especially since I have a 5mi race next weekend). I wasn't sure how my stomach or body would be, after my but of Norovirus this week, but I was willing to give it a try for as long as I could.

We headed west, over the peace bridge and out past Crowchild.   Very few walk breaks.   I was trying to pick up the pace a bit because my speed really suffered in my Goofy training.  Don't get me wrong - this was certainly NOT a speedy run...but it was swifter than usual and didn't go unnoticed by JS (who, I think, was quite happy to go faster than a snail with me once more :P )

The pathways were super icy in places so we took it pretty easy.  No sense getting injured right before spring training begins!

We turned around just past Crowchild bridge and headed back the way we came.  One quick photo op on the Peace Bridge as we passed over and then it was on to Eau Claire and the real reason we run...the coffee.
not sure about the angle of this one...
my head looks like it is twice the size of JS's...lol

After coffee, I did a little shopping at the Running Room and MEC and scored a couple of deals on some new running gear.  Guess it's about time I got some gear review posts done...I have some awesome things to tell you all about.

    1. It was a bit chilly when we first got going (we wondered if the sun would ever come out) but on the return trip - we quite enjoyed all of the loveliness!

    1. Thanks! It felt good to get out there.

      We are so lucky to live in a place where interesting public art is starting to become a priority.
