sunday runday

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!

today's mileage: 4.0 miles
season mileage to date: 23.0

Roxie, great post. I'm down in Houston, but used to frequent NYC on business and ran in Central Park all the time and loved it. It always amazed me to be surrounded by the city yet feel you were out away from everything. If you get a chance, please visit my running web site, Faithful Soles. I have a categorized and searchable Running Blog Database on there and would appreciate it if you would link your blog to it. I look forward to seeing how the "rookie" does running with you.
