|New Years Day run on the AT
This year started off with a fantastic run on the Appalacian Trail with a great group of runners!! Troy and I headed up to Boiling Springs early and met up with 6 other runners to start off 2012 with a 12 mile run. I was the only one to fall (twice!) but I had a great time. Since we're heavy into the marathon training schedule right now, I was glad that a run with our friends fit in perfectly. The weather was warm for the first of January, I was perfectly comfortable in a running skirt and short sleeves with my sock arm sleeves :) The first 6 miles out were easy on the legs, but I did a much slower pace on the way back which ended up being perfect as I got to run with Stacey and Kathleen the entire way. I commented to Troy today how perfect of a run it was because although I ran alone part of the time, I got time to run with the girls on the way back and really just revel in being outside, in the beautiful sunshine with friends who completely understand that is the best place to be! Happy New Year!!
