Freedom Park Meetup

AM: 80 mins. (10.5 miles)

Well, I definitely learned my lesson yesterday. When the alarm went off this morning I didn't even think twice about sleeping in. Instead, I nudged Jordan a few times to ensure that both of us were awake, then got up and put on my costume. In addition to beating the heat, the main incentive for the early run time was a scheduled meetup with Caitlin in Freedom Park. We left our respective abodes at 6:15 and met a few miles into our runs before joining up for the rest of a medium loop. The pace was quite slow--I was going to use "relaxed" or some other euphemism, but no, it was most definitely just slow--as all of us struggled to shake off a weekend of hard running. Luckily for me and Caitlin, Jordan was feeling the worst of all, which meant he was content to meander about at girl pace for the duration. Once back at the park, we decided to add on by escorting Caitlin back in the direction of her house. We parted ways on Morehead and then Jordan and I slogged out the remaining miles home. I can't say this was one of my better runs, but the company and cooler temperatures might necessitate this becoming a Monday morning routine.

It's a good thing we didn't do our meetup this morning because you might have followed me into the quick sand and lost your shoe as welll...
