Off and running in the dark this morning at 6:15am with only a small group. And by running, I really mean shuffling my feet as if to resemble a turtle jogging. With intermittent periods of snail walking. The more sane people went later but not an option for me since I had other stuff to do starting at 9:00. I was supposed to go by the local Dunkin Donuts at a specific time to pick up my loveable British friend Queenie. I ended up worrying the crap out of her because I was late from running so damn slow and did not estimate my distance properly. (Coach promises that the heart zone training will pay its dividends later). It was a nice treat to be accompanied for awhile by Queenie and another friend Bonita (she is a pretty Spanish teacher). We talked about everything from restaurants to global travels. Tame topics for us. We also hatched an idea for their newly forming non-profit to be my first official IM sponsor that I will raise money for. Kind of backwards, I know. But more to come about that in a later post.
