I am SO glad I had Megan to motivate me to get my booty out of bed this morning! We went on a lovely 10K run and watched the sun rise.
Megan‘s neighborhood run is so much prettier than mine that I don’t mind driving to her place in the morning. Our route goes through nice neighborhoods and about half of it is next to a lake.
Before I left, I had a slice of toast with almond butter:
Megan‘s friend Debbie joined us for the first 4.0 miles. It’s so nice to have someone to talk to during long runs — and honestly, I don’t think I would’ve gone for my run this morning if it hadn’t been for running buddies! We took a few walking breaks, but managed to finish with a decent time:
- Duration: 1 hour 3 minutes
- Distance: 10K (6.2 miles)
I raced home (I’m sooo late) and quickly threw together a special Friday breakfast:
Very egg-y Flax French Toast:
Plus fruit and real maple syrup:
Thanks for all your advice on my marathon training plan! I’ve answered some of your concerns/comments/questions in the comments section of the previous post. I really appreciate your feedback!
And whenever I get nervous about tackling such an awesome challenge, I’ll just think of my friend Megan (who I’m running the race in honor of) and I’ll look at my Road ID:
Have a wonderful Friday!
I can't think of a better way to start the day! Running and working out with friends first thing in the morning is one of my favorite things. Have a great Friday!
