5K with Friends

This morning, I met up with a friend to run our own 5k (just the 2 of us). We started before it got too hot (at 8) and made our miles. The trail was nice and quiet, not too many people were out in the beginning.

We went out 3.1 miles and finished with smiles on our faces (and she doesn't hate me for pushing her). I let her set the pace and walk when she needed. She wants to start running and build up her endurance. We're going to make this a monthly thing and see how she improves.

We walked the other 5k back in. The sites were very pretty. I love running next to water.

Nice and quiet, but people were starting to make their appearance.

When we completed a total of 6.2 miles, we made it back to the car. Since it was starting to get warmer, Jamba Juice was on our mind. A nice, cool, fruit drink was a nice finish to our run.

I was nice and warm in the some sun and she was cooling off in the some shade. Can't wait to see her progress next month! Great job this morning!!

Do you prefer to run with friends or solo?


  1. What a nice way to spend a Sunday morning! I usually like to run by myself, but it's nice to have an easy run with someone else so we can talk and catch up.

  2. Beautiful pictures! Looks so peaceful. I tend to run by myself, though I would love it if some runners lived closer to me!

  3. Nice trail. I usually run by myself none of my friends are runners but I do run with my 12 year old son quite often my runs with him are my most favorite of all.
