Happy New Year!

What a great way to start a new year and a new decade; 6 miles with good friends and post-run coffee. We totally lucked out with the weather as well; it was absolutely pouring just before we started. The rain stopped during our run and the sun even came out :-) The rain started again as we enjoyed our coffee and conversation. This is not best of photo of any of us; but that is o.k. I am in the back row, second from the right.

This is an awesome group of running mates; I am so thankful for them.

My running in December was worse than terrible and I really felt like I struggled this morning. I felt like I was fighting hard to run a 10:00 minute pace; I was so surprised to learn that we averaged 8:38 :-) I am thrilled. Especially since I didn't get a great nights sleep last night.

We are hosting an exchange student from Mexico and he had about 10 friends over for the evening. All in all they were very good and they tried to be quiet; I was just hyper vigilant, knowing there were other folks in the house and worried that everything was o.k. Also, my daughters were out for the evening; definitely giving me cause to be concerned.

My husband is out of town, attending the ROSE BOWL - GO DUCKS! so I never quite relax when he is gone.

2010 is going to rock!


  1. Hi Kathy,
    I want a running group!! Great job on your run this morning! I know what you mean about thinking you are moving at a really slow pace but it is just your body not feeling up to snuff....great pace for your distance!!Keep smiling:)

  2. Sounds like a great run! Sorry the Rose Bowl did not go well for the Ducks. I am totally digging the socks!!!
    Happy New Year!
