Morning! Who else is excited it’s already Thursday?! Yay for short weeks!
On Tuesday night, which really felt like Monday, I was off to Georgetown again for my favorite Lululemon Georgetown run club! Every Tuesday night at 6:30 p.m. :)
No Crossfit this time because our fearless leader, Chris, was out of town for a competition, so we got straight down to the running. This time, we hit up the canal!
You guys know I love this canal and run on it a lot — just usually farther north. It was a very hot and humid night so we were all grateful for the flat terrain!
We had a fun group and everyone was chatting away, so the run went by nice and quickly. We did a simple out and back. 4.85 miles — check! I brought my Garmin instead of my new MOTOACTV watch because I was worried it would rain — I know the Garmin is waterproof but I wasn’t 100% sure about the MOTOACTV.
- Mile 1: 8:45
- Mile 2: 8:44
- Mile 3: 8:52
- Mile 4: 8:51
- Pace for final 0.85 miles: 8:22
Our average overall pace was 8:43 min/miles. Good times! We headed back to the store after for some stretching and then, when I came back outside… this scary looking sky was awaiting me:
Ohhhh, crap. All of a sudden it started to get really windy, too. I nearly ran across the Key Bridge and back to the metro with this right on my heels!
Of course I stopped for a quick photo of the other direction off the bridge — beautiful!
Luckily, I made it into the metro and back home just before the massive downpour and thunderstorm started. Whew. :)
Happy Thursday, friends! Anyone have any funny stories to share about getting caught in the rain? I’ll always remember the night of my high school graduation — I went out to dinner with my family and there was such a massive downpour that the restaurant we were in actually partially flooded! It was crazy and quite the memorable evening. :)
