side note before we begin - i've posted 185 times! crazy.
anyway, i've really been trying to make it a point to run on sundays, because you never know what's going to happen to you and your running plans over the course of a week. so today i decided to go for an afternoon run. the rookie wanted to come with so i sent him a text and after a little back and forth we settled on a 4:40 run.
we picked a corner and arrived to find that we were practically wearing matching outfits - blue on top, black on the bottom. cute. very cute. we headed out to the east river at a good pace, heading for the manhattan bridge. about five minutes in, there we saw taurus (i need to come up with a new nickname, that one is annoying me) running in the other direction and we waved hello. wow, i really am a runner, and i even know other runners running.
it was the perfect temp, and we headed to the manhattan bridge. it's new running with a boy, because for the most part, i always ran with charlotte. demps & drew were always more speedy than me, and i suspect soon the rookie will be too. i think i was going faster than i would go if i was on my own, its hard to say, but it felt like a good, solid pace that i was happy with.
a few hours later, i'm a little sore but it's good. and i'm continuing to cajole and convince...i think my powers of persuasion are having a good effect. come on rookie, just join already!
