After the run, they had a table set up with lots of carby (yes, I just made that up) foods, most notably a delicious cake with lots o' frosting. The coffee was all caffeinated so I had to pass and the hot chocolate was not so hot. I suggested another Stabucks outing and my buddies happily agreed. I'm thrilled to have this new group of friends since I usually run these local races solo. Our next outing is a relay in February! So psyched.
Today is the last day of my Runner's World Running Streak. I ran 36 days consecutively since Thanksgiving. On my regular days off, I would just run one mile. These easy days were fun. I'm happy it's over, though. I've read about some people who claim to be streaking since the '70s (as in bell bottoms and KC & the Sunshine Band). I find this hard to believe, but I guess anything is possible.
My last streak day was an 8 miler. I ran it in 1:04:23, an 8:03 pace. Four of the eight miles were supposed to be at half marathon pace (7:48), but I winged it and ran by feel. It ended up being a 7:38 pace. Cool.
