It was Girl Child Segundus' birthday Saturday and her party on Sunday, and I had not one, but two pieces of birthday cake to run off today. Birthday cake is my vice. Oh and coffee. OK, I read a lot of genre books and very few improving ones. But those three are all complimentary, it's hard to not want to enjoy all three at once.
I have a new accountability partner. I invited Soul Sister to run on Mondays with Dear Husband. I assured her that even though she is beginning her couch to 5K, she would be no problem keeping up because I run at a snail's pace. This turned out to be true. We began our 5K loop from Jacobs to Terry to Ft. Casey. Dear Husband took off down the road as he always does; Soul Sister and I motivated down the road at a slower pace. Finally, she hit a running portion of her program. She bounded ahead with a long bouncy stride. Uh oh. I kept my pokey pace and caught up on her walk portion. We tortoised and hared it all the way to Ft. Casey.
