Today was a little stormy after school, which was when my colleague and I had planned for our first run together. I decided that I would rather run in the rain than go later when it would be dark. My fellow teacher decided to join me and it was really a great time! We ran about 3.6 miles at a quicker pace than I usually run for a non-speed work run so I will call it a tempo and be done with speed work for the week. I would have endured the run alone but it was significantly more enjoyable when shared with great company. Friends really do make everything a little more enjoyable.
