Just like last weekend‘s long run, I was joined by two good friends :) Weez and I did the first 11 miles with Ali, then she took off to finish up a total of 20. She’s running the Napa Valley Marathon in 3 weeks, which is pretty exciting!
Having their company is so much fun on these long runs because the miles just fly by. Literally, we were telling stories, laughing, and chatting away the entire time. Since the trails were all sloppy from the melting snow, we decided to run a less hilly route (not like the 1700 ft we climbed last week). A modest 1086 ft of elevation gain this week, over 11 miles. Solid, I’d say!
Tonight, my brother is coming to town to visit :) We always have such a good time together. He makes me laugh till my stomach hurts. He cooks me delish food. He tells the most hilarious stories. He’s in grad school and runs a lot, just like me. We have a ton in common. My brother totally rocks.
Tomorrow morning, he’s running the Screamin’ Snowman snowshoe run/race up in Nederland, so I’ll be going with him to cheer him on!
I plan on bringing my camera, so look out for some sweet pics on Monday. I hope you have a great rest of your weekend!
