Team Running!

This morning I went running with my friend Karon and her running group, the San Diego Track Club.

Before heading out the door at 6AM, I had a piece of toast with some almond butter, and a banana.

We ran around the UCSD campus, for a 1:30 timed run. iPod battery went ka-putz so I don’t really know my pace or distance. Boo! 😦 I’m so used to running with music, I had to entertain myself by thinking of songs I’d listen to in my head. It kind of worked.. not really though! I consumed a CLIF shot while running.

Despite the unfortunate circumstances, it was an awesome run! I loved running with a group (about 100 runners I’d say) and the feeling of running with everyone was amazing. It really helped make up for no music.

Another thing I liked about running with the group was the amount of support. Normally I run by myself so it takes a lot of mental energy for me to help get myself through a difficult hill, or hard mile mid-run. Today while I was running, whether it was me or a runner passing each other we’d encourage each other by saying “Good job!”. It doesn’t really seem like much but just hearing little words of encouragement like that goes a long way. Maybe I’ll join a running club in the future? 🙂

After the run Karon and I met up with her running mentor, Steve, at a nearby cafe Come On In.

Karon bought a muffin for us to all shared, which I picked at.

I also ordered a bowl of fruit with some yogurt and granola. Nom nom!

Steve brought some berries from his garden so we all munched on some of them. They were really good!

After coming home, I worked in the garden for a little and then made myself a green smoothie, which I enjoyed in a bowl. SIAB!

Not sure what the rest of the day has in store but it sure is gorgeous out!
