First Buddy Run

Saturday - 29-Jan-2011:
I went to the Running Revolution in a hurry thinking I am going to be late, but when went there by 8:10 am, the gear workshop had just started. I got a plenty of information about the various dresses, shoes, and all other kind of things I have never known why they are there in the sports goods shops!

We then came together with Aaron and then started running into the Campbell Park. We did a 2 mile run on the trail, and it was very refreshing as the day was slowly beginning to get warm. Initially i felt very cold, but it was better off slowly. Ron, also one of Aaron's Mentees, was keeping pace with me and we both did the full 2 mile talking to each other and keeping the encouragement going.. It was definetly a good run and I was back to sign out!

6:30 PM was the time for a buddy run and plan was to meet up in the Rivermark plaza. My husband suddenly said he would be there with me for the run and we both reached the place by 6:15. It was too cold and we dint want to go out and wait. Around 6:25, when we went to the spot that we had agreed upon, there was literally no one waiting for us.. Aaron joined us at 6:30 sharp and we waited for a couple of minutes and then started to run as just the three of us! The plan was a 3 mile on the trail.. Initially, I was able to keep the momentum when we just started and went till a few miles, and slowly when it was 1.5 miles, I had started to walk! I did most of the return as a walk + run while Aaron was trying to jog to keep pace with me..

I thought the buddy runs are going to eat up my day and I am not going to have any time, but when were done with the dinner, it was just 8:00 and I felt like I had plenty of time in hand and so much energy due to all that running, it was a great feeling!

I think I am going to do the 13.6 miles easily! Let me see how it goes!
