My sister (training for a half marathon) met me after 8 miles and ran the last half with me. Nothing like seeing a excited and familiar face when you are half way into a run and starting to think "8 miles is good enough.. I think I want to be done..." oh wait!... nope gotta run another 8 now that I have a buddy.
Overall the run went well. I felt very accomplished but not totally pleased with my average pace and total time, but oh well, I still burned a whole lotta calories which I was very pleased with.
I still can't believe I will be running 26.2 miles in June. I get that jittery feeling every time I really think about how long that is.
P.S. Bringing dates on my run was perfect! I think I will continue to train with those sweet babies. :)
