Running, Running, Running

In January I became good friends with Judy Fellhauer, she was a regular in one of the spinning classes I go to a lot. She used to coach running at Colorado College and she was getting ready to put together a team for women runners, beginners on up. I thought it would be nice to do some training with a group to keep me motivated and to meet more runners. I am by no means a good runner. I am really slow, but I try.

We started running in the the March snow and this last weekend we did our concluding race - 10 miles in the Garden of the Gods. This is a tough course, it has lots of hills, in fact a lot of runners say they would rather do an easy half marathon rather than the Garden of the Gods 10 miler. It was tough but it was also a great way to end fourteen weeks of training. Our group is now continuing on to run a fall marathon, so I might actually get my Marathon in this year, we'll see. It has been so great to make so many new running friends and be with other people who are always training for something.
