On Saturday, I finally got brave and went to a group run.
I've been a part of the local running club on Facebook for about a year, but hadn't done anything with them. My excuses included: I'm pregnant, I just had a baby, I can't run more than a half mile without having to stop and walk, I don't know anyone, I will probably feel like a loser, what if I'm not fast enough?
I headed to Starbucks to meet up with the group. We went 3.6 miles at about 11:50 mm. The miles flew by, I loved meeting new runners, I didn't need to stop for a break. In fact, I would have liked to pick up the pace a bit, but no man or woman left behind!
This really gave me a lot of confidence with running. That distance and that pace were actually EASY for me. I got over myself and ran with completely new people. I had fun.
I will be running with the group again---hopefully soon!
