Short Long Run 4.7

22 Nov

Comments: Can you say COLD! OMG…23 degrees…it took me hours to warm back up!

Met with the TNT group. My plan was to go 6, even though A and T were only going 1 to 2 and then meet up with them to discuss fundraising. The loop around the lake is 1.2. I did the first two, then after the 2nd saw A talking with one of the coaches. She had done her 1 loop, I chatted for a while and did another one. After the 3rd loop I stopped again, this time to chat with A and T, who had done 2 loops. At that time I was only at 3.5 something miles, so I went off to do another.

After the 4th loop I figured A had waited in the cold long enough. My Garmin read 4.7, not even close to the 6 I wanted to do, but sometimes things are not meant to be.

We met at *bucks afterward, my first SB trip ever. I did not indulge in a coffee or some other fancy concoction, but stuck with a bottle of water instead and a blueberry cake, which was yummy. Our first fundraiser will be a 50/50, which we are hoping to sell tickets for at work (we have to check with HR first though) and then a fundraiser at a bar, that agreed to help us.  If the bar agrees to the date, it will be on the 12th of next month, the same day we are holding the drawing for our 50/50 raffle. Off to making posters and flyers now…

    You are a brave woman to run when it’s that cold! My feet are cold just thinking about it! 🙂
