Secret to summer running: Wait until the sun begins to set!
I met Megan for a nighttime run in a safe residential neighborhood. We churned out 6.0 steady miles in 1:04 (some walking was required) and gossiped ourselves silly.
It was a great run! I haven’t run that far in… months? In fact, the last time I ran more than 6.0 miles was the Iron Girl 15K on April 10, 2010.
More importantly… We celebrated our 1 Year Friend Anniversary. Megan and I met on June 6, 2009! :) Megan will always hold a special place in my heart because she was my #1 training buddy for the Disney Marathon. We did almost ALL of our long runs together, including the most hellish 22.0 mile run EVER. And the time we jumped in a public fountain after running 18.0 miles!

After our run, I came home and made a REALLY late dinner:
Arnold Sammie Thin with an egg, broccoli, cherries, and melon:
Which I ate sitting on the floor. Sometimes the floor is the best table, don’t you agree? I needed to streeetch out after that run!
Time for bed! 🙂
Have a nice Sunday evening!
That’s great you got a friend who runs. I do all my runs on my own. Long run days it would probably be nice to have some company for the misery? 🙂
