running 2009

A different kind of running

Kaiser training run in the Presidio

In preparation for my birthday race, the Kaiser Permanente Half Marathon, I decided to attend four free training runs hosted by Pamakids Runners and Sports Basement. This meant running on Saturdays, which I normally avoid, but it was worth it to run with other people for a change of pace.

I was afraid my legs would be trashed again this morning, between the 8 miles of hilly running and ~4 miles of walking I did yesterday. But I felt good enough to bundle up against the sub-40 degree weather and do the 5K race I'd planned, and finished it in under 31 minutes. I'll write that race up once the official results are posted. Happy that I'm getting more fit!
