Running Loco

I ran 18 miles this morning with a local running club.  Loco Motion. It was so great! Every two miles they had a sag wagon for us...anything and everything a runner needs on those long runs was available. Most importantly though, were the friendships that I was able to make. I met lots of great people and I don't know why I haven't joined a club before. Most of the people there are training for St. George in October. They have long runs scheduled every Saturday throughout the valley. Today we were up Emigration Canyon; the Deseret News Marathon course. Such a pretty run! I think we must have run about 12 miles (give or take) uphill. The final hill just about kicked my butt, but I triumphed! (: I pushed myself harder than I probably would've on my own.  I came home so excited!

Emily keeps trying to get me to go run with Loco Motion. Maybe next year. So far I've been able to find enough suckers to run with me around here ;). Sounds like fun, though, since I'm a social runner.

Oooh. I'm intrigued now, too!
