Since I've slacked off on my long run of the week for the past few weeks, I decided to get my long run done right off the bat! So, today I ran out on the river trail for 45 minutes and back. Ran into Vanessa with about 35 minutes to go, so we ran together back to the trail head and to the base of the first dam hill, where she turned back to go to her car. It was so fun to run with her, she is one of my favorite former teammates. Probably my very favorite. The run was hard by the end, but I am glad I got the death run out of the way!
