Hardest run to date

I was in St. Louis this weekend and ran with one of my buddies. He has been running steadily for the past year, and is in training for a half marathon. Anyway, he was due for a 4.5 miler so I ran with him last Friday.

It was really good running with someone, and especially good running with someone faster than you. We also ran outside in his neighborhood which has a lot of hills which I've been avoiding so far. Long story short, I ran 4.45 miles at a 10:30 min. per mile pace. This was really hard but very rewarding.

I think I need to get a running buddy. I also need to get outside more once the weather gets a tad warmer.

Bill - you'll probably hate this, but I run about 6 miles at a 10-min mile pace twice a week from the Pro Club (Tuesday and Thursday) at, um, here's the kicker: 5:15 a.m.

If you ever want to join me (and my running partner, Nancy), let me know!

I might take you up on your offer after I've been at it for a little while longer. After the kids get out of school, I won't have to be home to get them off. Then maybe I can get out of the house that early!
