Then on Saturday, I did it again. Ran a mile with Amy and Julia, then walked for one minute, then ran another mile! That second mile was mostly on a gradual uphill, which was a little more challenging, but I forced myself to get through it. There was a third mile, but I did 1:1 intervals for that one. Still, I was pretty pleased that the Thursday run wasn't a fluke.
The other fun thing about Saturday's run was that we are all on what I like to call "happy distances" - no one is training for a half marathon anymore, so we were running anywhere from 3 - 4.5 miles...just enough to feel like you've done something, but you still feel great afterward.

Andi and I - we've decided that we are secret twin sisters because we are so much alike in how we think (I was standing on the curb to lessen the Devito/Schwarzenegger height difference).
Amy and Julia finishing their run (I ran 3 while they ran 4 miles).
Yesterday morning, Amy came over (it's spring break so she had time) and we ran my neighborhood route of 2.6 miles. Ran the first mile without stopping like nobody's business, yes we did! This running thing is getting better and better.
