Of course my inability to keep up caused me to have to find my own way back, and for someone who loses track of where they parked their car on a DAILY basis, that spells trouble. Luckily, because i am a professional creeper, i followed some ladies for a while and listened to what they were saying in order to try and see if they were part of the chick night. Luckily they were. And luckily for them, i am not a serial killer.
It was a nice experience being with other runners, since in the past i have always been a lone wolf. The pack is nice! it makes you feel safe, even at night, and pushes you to run faster, because no one wants to be the slowest in the pack. (they leave that to me! The chick who got chicked by all the other chicks. but i am chick, so thats ok, right?) Needless to say, i thought it was awesome, and intend to run it again, provided i didn't embarrass Keren toooooo much with my general slowness, and the fact that i will continue to show up in the same sweater and pants week in and week out, because to date, they are the only cold weather running clothes i own.
I came home to a cranky boyfriend, and made homemade pizza to try and cheer him up, as well as fuel myself for speed training tomorrow morning!
I seriously love these compression socks. They make my legs feel ready to rock in the morning, even if they are zapped the night before. As i relax, i am watching the "Hell on Wheels" from sunday. Does anyone watch that show? It's amazing, and i love the soundtrack as well. Its about a bunch of raucous cowboy-esque folk trying to build the railroad to the pacific. I love everything about this show.
*****edited to add, i totally slept through speed training. Waking up at 5am is going to have to be eased into. Gingerfoxxx = fail.
***********edited to add further, couldn't remember where i parked my car AGAIN this morning. WTF??
