Galloway Run Two

Adrenaline is coursing after a four mile run with the Galloway Group.

Today we ran one mile before an 80-85% push toward another mile marker.

I clocked my time at @9:15, slightly faster than I’d expected, probably because the last half mile was down hill.

I’m fairly certain that the 10.5 minute per mile group is the right one for me and I felt good (even up hill) with the group.

When I returned home the girls were just sitting down for breakfast with their dad.

I joined them and though probably should have refueled with a piece of Ezekiel bread and peanut butter, couldn’t resist the strawberry pancakes that Brian had already plated. Unfortunately, my fork couldn’t resist the sugar-coated lemon cake under cover in the center of the table, either. It, too, was begging to be eaten.

By the way, as I waited for the run to begin I spoke with two of the ladies from my group; Maria (the pace leader) and Kellie (e?) her marathoning partner. When Maria saw my name tag she turned to me and said, “Are you the blogger?”

“Yes, yes I am!”

She remembered my name from the post I passed on to the WannaBeasts group through facebook .

Recognition for the blog and a fantastic four mile run all before 8:30 a.m.?

Perfect start to this perfect day!

    1. Hasn’t it been a pretty day! We’ve been outside playing in the sprinkler…Perfect beginning to summer for everyone!

    1. You are sweet! I love your blog and your pictures! Sometimes I look at your food for the day pictures for motivation. I eat far too much and your diet seems so balanced… even with pizza and frozen yogurt on the menu!

  2. It’s nice to hear what you have to say about your Raleigh Galloway experiences. New runners to our program bring new attitudes and new perspectives. Thanks for sharing – Ron Wahula
