Comments: The TNT group run was at Sharon Woods today. I’d say about 20 people showed up, which is about the norm. A and I stretched a bit and were off. Going by our time on Wednesday (12:44 min/mile) I would have assumed we’d be doing a 12 min mile or so pace, but after the first mile is was evident that we would be going faster. I kept trying to run just a little behind A, so she could determine the pace. She was like a loaded pistol. We covered the first mile in 10:44. The second mile was a little slower because she needed to tie her shoe. The third and fourth mile put us at an average of 10:59, a much faster pace than 12:44!
The loop was only 3.8 long, but I talked her into finishing out the 4 miles, which she did!
I am enjoying having a running partner and have decided to run the ½ marathon with her instead of trying to PR. I feel the need to enjoy the race more than the desire to finish it “fast”. A mentioned today that all goes well she would like to train for the full marathon in October. Can you say “hooked” lol
Our fundraiser at a bar last night netted us $83.25 each (there were 4 of us). Not bad for 4 hours worth of work and a ton of fun!
The fundraiser at the running store wrapping presents for donation this afternoon netted us $2 each…haha, less than the $4 I made last week; granted though the girls before us made $53 each. I guess it was just bad timing on our part.
With my ‘donut’ money (bringing donuts to work for donations every Wednesday and donating the money for the donuts as well) I am just about ½ way to my obligatory $1500. Wo-hoo!
