Saturday Run...

Well I managed a really good week. I discovered bike spinning, that is awesome. I love it and I have incorporated that into my ironman training. I cannot beleive I will be running another Ironman in less than 20 weeks. I have lots of preparations to do..

Yesterday Friday I ran 13 miles or so around the San Mateo trail. It is one of my favorite places to run, the trail is flat and paved. Good for a nice training run. .

I got up and ran for a full hour before I met my running group. After I met them, I ran the last 6 miles with them. Not very hard, just consistent and steady. Of course after the run we had to go for breakfast. Which is why I run, so I can eat. I got all you can eat pancakes and believe me I ate quite well.

This is part of my running crew (Mid Peninsula running club) they are awesome.. We usually go eat after each run, and that is where the fun begins.

Some of the boys...
Some of the gals..

Check out the trails I ran this Friday.... It is really nice to be able to run here. I feel blessed cuz I can run and because I have the opportunity to see this beautiful places.. It was raining the day before, so there were lots and lots of puddles, which made my shoes really heavy and I was afraid I was going to get a blister, but I did not. Thank God..
A bench I usually stop to stretch a little before I run the trail, but as you can see, it was wet. See the trail just behind the table. It is nice and flat. although most of it is paved, I rather run in the dirt..

See the nice trail.... this was about 7:00 am in the morning, a little chilly, but it was sooo quiet... amazing..
