Group Run: 5/20

  Sunday was another group run with : 

                                 

                                                     &  

                        

Again I started to slow drop back, first a few steps behind the front of the pack but not quite with the second group. Then they were about a block ahead, finally all but one were out of eye view. There was one girl with a purple shirt that I recognized as being part of the group so I kept focused on her. It was as we hit the AIDS walk that I became separated from the pack so among the sea of red I focused on the glimpse of purple. Because she began a walk/run pattern I was finally able to catch up and we stuck it out together on the end. With my lovely sense of direction I thought we were on the north side of the reservoir slowly making our way west, feeling doomed because all the groups were suppose to gather back around now. Somehow I was completely off – we were still on the east side – and we quickly met up with them. 

I made sure to join in the group stretches this time. And not fake stretch either but really make sure I felt it. 

This week’s tied-in event was with Jack Rabbit….it introduced the gang to shoe analyze. Since I’m still on a pair that they fitted for me (and I love!) I went back to grab my purse. But I ended up going back to JR’s with some of the girls where I stocked up on fuel anyways.

The run was another reminder – I’d rather be pushing myself at the back of the pack than being ahead and not giving it my all! And truly, it’s these group runs that made me realize it.
