I haven't been blogging much or even reading very many blogs lately (sorry blog friends. I'll try to fix that).
I have been running a little here and there, but without any goals. It's nice but weird and kind of dull. My husband and I started a running group here in our little town and we had our first meet up last Saturday. We had 3 people show up, not including my husband and I. Not too bad really. A)It's a small town so there isn't a large pool of runners to draw from. I think we may end up creating more runners than already exist, and that's just fine by me. B) It was our very first meet up. C) It was 34 degrees that morning so the people who did come out were real troopers and I have a lot of faith that they will continue to come out.
We had a pretty good 3 mile run, of which I ran the entire way. I know, big whoop it's just a 3 miler. Dude, for real, it doesn't matter how short the run is lately, when I'm by myself will power and motivation are non existent. Running with other people always pumps me up somehow. It's a big reason why we started this group. We start and end on the square in the middle of town (it's a small but adorable little town) and afterward have coffee at one of the cafe's.
Right now we have a variety of speeds, although I would love to see some walkers come and join us. We're a little short on testosterone right. 2 out of the 5 were guys at our first meet up, but all 19 members on the Celina Runners facebook group are chicks. What is the opposite of a sausage fest? Something with clams? I would like to add another run or two during the week and I've noticed that one of the Mexican restaurants in town does free margaritas on Tuesday nights. Hmmm... Terrible Tuesday Margarita Run? Of course mine would have to be virgin for a while (Booooo for virgins!!!!).
Would it be a clam bake? No?
