Here we are... (again)

It's not September, but somehow it's fall... kids are at day two, which brings us to day... one (well one-ish).

8:30AM and I stand with 5 fantastic women... Feels like we're missing a few (not counting our fallen injured duo). One call to a sleepy Shan and she's out the door, standing/running with us in 3 min. flat (crazy impressive).

Luckily for all our legs everyone had taken a slight summer vacation. There was no leaving anyone in the dust, just a sweet cluster of chatty friends.

Our usual talkative selves were huffing a tad more, than say our March selves. With that said.... We did it. We all showed up with laced up shoes and attitudes that could lift the lowest of spirits.

The next week or so we'll be keeping our pace and miles on the low side. Plenty of time to build up to our pending 10k, half marathon, 25k, marathon, and or 50k goals.

If you've ever thought about running with a group (**this group**)... Great time to join in!!! We meet every Tuesday and Thursday at 8:30 AM in the parking lot of San Juan Island Fitness!!
Hope to see you there!

Trial run.

Slowly, we are trading in beach towels and bathing suits....

Alarms are silenced and lazy legs are in motion. Waking anxious darlings and filling them with oatmeal and eggs for their first day back to school. I lace up my new (they're going) back to school tennies and continue with the curling of locks and finding of socks (unintentional rhyming).

With a kiss and a wave and a reminder to "make good choices"... We start our days.

Broken toe-ed BooBoo and I meet, to see how important that tiny toe of hers really is, and if I can run at all after such a long break.

Three blocks up, BooBoo decides that it's too painful... one block up she decides to keep at it, so she could finish her story (besides at my pace it's all manageable). Three miles of ignoring sore toes and out of condition legs, we finish with a "that wasn't so bad" shrug.
