- Run .5 mile: 4:19, ...8:31 equivalent
I usually don't run after lunch and had the side-ache to prove it. I was planning on running three miles before everyone arrived and it most definitely did not happen. Oh well. Since my side was still hurting some and it wasn't time to get together with the group I walked around and took some pictures.

it was a little windy

me, attempting to take a picture without my sunglasses...should have left them on because my eyes were watering by the time I took the picture
Perfect timing, right as I was finishing with my picture taking the others arrived. We were in two groups again today...the run-run group and the run-walk group. Both groups were great! Darlene and I ran 3.12 miles together. Once again I had to stop to stretch my side (I turned my garmin off when I stopped and actually remembered to turn it back on this time!).

We had a quick group photo before we went our separate ways.

It was great to be done. I finished with 4.88 miles today (9:44 ave pace) which isn't close to 6, but I'll take it.
Now a vent. When I spend money on shoes I want them to treat me well. Running shoes are expensive (even when they are on sale). I have 200+ miles on the New Balance shoes I wore today and I am STILL getting blisters. I will not be buying them again. So, what should I do with an expensive pair of shoes that give me blisters? I have no idea. Grrr.
Finally, one of the other loves of my life: books. I won a book from I'm a Sleeper Baker!!! It couldn't be more perfect because I love reading. Between reading, running and kids I'm surprised I get anything done (like blogging). I can't wait to read it, but first I need to finish my book for book club tomorrow night (only 170 pages left, Gah!). Also, if you are curious about what I've been reading, scroll way-way-way down and there at the bottom on the right are the books I've recently finished. I've read 21 books so far this year. The next one I start will be:
