Today was a lot of fun. Tara and I ran a half marathon relay race this morning. We were a team of 3 with a kick ass friend of ours and each of us ran a 7K leg.
I was Leg 1. Lucky for me, my running partner extraordinaire Leanne who was running with Team Heart & Sole was also Leg 1.
Team Ace in my Pants was cold, but we were mighty and all three of us ran great times for our legs. My 7K was still run in intervals (which still seems to be what I can to do keep my aches and pains at bay and still run) but I got it done in 51:56 which was a lot faster than my time the weekend before and faster than I thought I would come in. (Thank YOU Leanne for the excellent company and the push at the end!)
I had a blast with my team and seeing so many familiar faces at the race today. The relay format was a whole lot of fun. I wasn’t sure about the idea of running around the Halifax Commons 4.75 times to hit the 7K mark, but I actually really enjoyed it. Coming back around to the crowd and the music and your teammates to cheer you each lap made it awesome. Our Team name was Ace in Our Pants, so each lap we collected an Ace to keep track of our laps and into our pants it went!
I may not be the fastest runner. But I am getting slightly faster with time. And best of all, I’m finding new ways to love being my kind of runner. And that is a helluva lot of fun.
