The Petite Pacer (TPP) was already waiting in Lot 6 in her Petite Car. ER and I showed up at the same time. We began our run after they got their Garmins connected to outer space. We ran a couple of loops within the park, as well as on the sidewalks on the perimeter. There were a few ice patches, but not too bad. We ran at a relaxed pace, unintentionally, with some good conversation. TPP had her usual pep in her step and ER made a good effort, especially since we ran double what he had been running since the new year. In the end, we covered 6.7 miles (Amazingly, the exact number I needed to complete my 14 miles for the day!).
We made a quick stop at Starbucks, had our picture taken by a fan (or a very nice patron), then went our separate ways. Once again, a fun run with wonderful new friends. The miles tick away when you're with good company. I am looking forward to our next outing.
