So, remember Tanya W. who I met in the park last Saturday? She joined DM and sent me an email asking if I'd run with her friend doing a solo 22 this morning. SHYEAH I WILL! Met up with random girl (Sally) at 4:30 and we headed toward the park but not INTO the park...there was just an attempted rape/attack the other day and everyone is hyper-aware of it. THIS is why I love the running community. I was going to have to run this alone but because of someone I just met, I was able to have company--super sweet girl, same pace and very easy to talk to. The miles ticked by so quickly!

Plan was to go 6 easy, 6 @MP. I was worried with all the miles I've had my legs would protest. I found that when we hit the MP miles, though, we were still able to talk! Sally took off to finish up her run after mile 10 and I headed back to my car with a couple solo miles.
Warm-Up (9:06, 8:40, 8:45, 8:48, 8:28, 8:47)
MP (7:52, 7:49, 7:58, 7:52, 7:41, 7:30)

Couple nasty hills in the middle & on the tail end: http://connect.garmin.com/activity/222162227 Oh, the 3min. lapse in time is because I had to stop at Comfort Inn to pee. :-D

Another twofer on deck today...watch out or 4 more recovery miles. :)

It's almost FRIIIIDAY! Happy running, friends!

    Great job Jenny. Maybe it's just me but it seems like there have been a lot more attacks on runners lately ... even here in the jungle of DC.
