Well, how could I resist an offer like that? Keith and I have been trying to figure out a way we could finally meet in person for MONTHS! After a bit of back and forth by email, we decided we'd meet at Southland station at 11:30 and finally get in a run together! I was very excited to meet him.
They skies were threatening rain all morning and as I crossed the bridge over the tracks, I was getting spit on (silly me, I'd forgotten my rain jacket - that would have ensured the threat would go away), but by the time I met up with Keith, the rain had stopped and it was merely humid.
We did a nice, easy loop through Canyon Meadows and Southwood - chit chatting all the way - and finished up with a couple of those Southwood hills for good measure.

We started to talk about elevation charts for our runs and I was sad that I wouldn't have one because Nike+ doesn't import one to Daily Mile...but then I suddenly remembered that I could actually log into the website and see if there was one there...and HUZZAH! There is!

It was wonderful to finally get to chat with Keith in person. I am glad his grumbly knee has finally decided to settle down a bit so we could do this and I am already looking forward to our next run!
and a little bit of geekery - because, well, it's me...
