I have to admit, I had nerves about running today. My chest is still sore from coughing, my nose is still running, I’m still tired and I was worried it was too soon. However, I went ahead and set up the run with Sue because I knew I would need the support in order to get out after a long week off.
We met at Eau Claire market, did some quick stretching and hit the trail. It was absolutely gorgeous out and the temperature was perfect – above zero!! There were loads of people out along the river and the geese were hanging out on ice blocks (loudly I might add.) We crossed the Centre Street Bridge and headed back towards Kensington. My breathing was a bit difficult, but we powered through.The run didn’t take any time to go by and I think it may have been our fastest pace together yet! It felt great to get caught up, share stories from the week and of course, laugh! After we finished we headed over to Tim Hortons (naturally) and got something warm to drink. I must say, I am 0 for 2 (for my non-North American friends, it’s Roll Up the Rim at a coffee shop here)! This is deja vu from last year, and the year before that and so on! Oh well.
Anyway – just want to say a huge thanks to Sue (aka Wedgie) for coming out today. I know it took a little bit to haul your behind out of bed due to social festivities last night but I really appreciate your support! And I should also say (even though someone else told us not to brag about it…) that it’s pretty impressive to be nearing 30 and still have the ability to bounce back after a night of indulging in the booze. LOL… you da best!
