Thursday Night Fun Run

Thursday nights are the highlight of my training week, as I head over to A Runner's Circle for the Thursday night "Fun Run" through Griffith Park. About 2 years ago I started running with them on Thursday nights as a way to break up the monotony of training by myself. At first there were a handful of people every week and since has grown into quite the crowd, averaging 20-25 runners each week. There is a 5 mile and a 3 mile run and there are pace groups for all ranges of paces. Last night the store was addition to the Fun Run, there was a Team in Training shoe clinic, "The Pain Eraser" who helped alleviate pain through massage and pressure points, and a representative from Accelerade/Forze was sampling both Accelerade and Forze GPS bars.

Here is a link to pictures of last nights event.

I had a nice, easy run with my running partner, Melissa and our friend and San Diego Rock n Roll relay teammate Ann (See Below). We kept a real slow pace and talked and laughed most of the way. Couldn't think of a better way to knock off 6 miles! Final stats: 6 miles in 1:15 (12:30/mi)

If you are interested in joining us for the Thursday Night Fun Run, come on over to A Runner's Circle, we start at 6pm...everyone is welcome!

First, nice shirt.
Second, wish I could join you on Thursday nights, but alas, the airfare is just too darn expensive.
