Our schedule today called for 22 miles but we didn't follow that since we knew we would pretty much be in the hills the entire morning. We agreed on a 3 hour run. This run kicked my butt. I need more hills in my life. I also need more group runs in my life. I have been doing my lung runs solo until today. It was really nice being out there with my squad. The temperature was pretty chilly this morning when we started out add that with the some pretty steep inclines and you have one chick who can not breathe very well.
I was feeling humbled right from the start but I'm grateful that I was able to get some elevation changes in. Southeastern Pennsylvania is an amazing area to live and run. I hope I can get back out to the trails in the Wissahickon a few more times before we head off to West Virginia. I had a tough time finding a sitter for today's run but I did not give up. The past 8 weeks I have been blessed with free family childcare during my runs which made it more tolerable when I had to pay a sitter for today's run. I has grateful to have my children in good hands while I was out. After today's run the baby and I had a party to attend. Happy 3rd Birthday Oliver! I wasn't in too bad of shape but I did have some soreness in my left knee.
