The first annual "Frosty Frolic"!
My brother wanted me to run the bike loop (10.5) with him and I said sure, knowing he usually does his long runs at 9 minutes I thought I could shuffle through it and be nice and sore for Christmas festivities. Instead, he wanted to go closer to 8 minute pace. It was hilly, cold and windy (30 mph gusts in our faces!) but a TON of fun :) I did lots of catching up with my best friend who came along for the fun, and we finished averaging 8:15 pace, and ran most miles sub 8 because we were distracted by our talking. Needless to say I am sore! Next year we are making shirts!
This was, sadly, my longest run of 2010. The double digits make me feel like a runner again!
Merry Christmas and/or Happy Holidays!
