|My first love is DIGGING!!|
The trail run I did is called a "Pub run" because everyone meets at a pub and after the runners can get a beer. I don't know about you, but I can barely handle drinking a whole beer by myself when I haven't just run, so I'm in awe of people who can run and then drink and not pass out. They have it every week, but I can never make it because it starts at 4pm and my husband doesn't get home from work until 5pm and I can't take Faith in her stroller on the trails.
|I could never hack it in a hash run|
I remembered why I hate running with the dog sometimes: she pulls me right through stream crossings instead of letting me use the stones to step over. Other than that, Peanut is a great trail runner and can definitely out run me. She only protested when I wanted to walk up this one muddy hill. Did I mention that I was the only one who holds a strong belief in walking non-paved hills? I need to convert more people. Sure, we only ran 6 miles, but we need to practice the walking anyway just in case it turned into a 16 mile run. :)
I finished up 6.38 miles in just under 59 minutes (9:14 min average pace), which is a pretty good pace for trails. We did finish up on pavement, but it was super hilly. I was reminded why I generally avoid that section of Leonardtown. Yes, I am that lazy.
|Mommy, I won't let you be lazy at home, I promise.|
I don't know how afternoon/night runners do it. After a 4pm run, I was ready to come home, shower, stuff my face, and then pass out. There is no way I was going to be productive at all and it's a good thing we still had leftovers from Christmas dinner because there was no way I was going to cook!
Could you drink a beer right after running or are you a lightweight like me?
Are you a morning or evening runner?
