We all split up in to groups of two, and everyone took a different route, so Diane and I were alone in the spooky, dark part of our run. We wore our blinky lights/reflectors, but I suspect even if we'd carried a tiny flashlight (which I've done in the past), we still would have been a bit freaked out, thanks to the fog. It was also nice and warm, so the fog, along with all of the sprinklers going on, added nicely to the humidity, bringing it to just about 100%. I knew our cooler morning weather was only a tease last week, but oh man, I really cannot wait for it to arrive for real. We ended up doing 4.5 miles and I am totally good with that.
After the run, we spent quite a while talking on the driveway of the clubhouse; baby Logan is too young to go out in public yet, so his parents are taking turns going to Blue Baker. Oh - I forgot the most important thing! Logan had his first walk with the Renegades! He was cleared for stroller walks, so Cary and bodyguard Jimmymeow went for a short walk while the rest of us went running. Cary said he did really well, and so did the baby, haha!
Diane, Jeff, and I are chugging along with our weekday runs; soon enough, we'll be building the distance back up to at least three miles, so for now, I'm enjoying the 2.3 mile route that we've been taking. Here's hoping the increased miles will coincide with a decrease in morning temps - wouldn't that be nice?
Cary and I are walking twice a week now and I'm really loving this; not only getting some good walks in, but also being able to chat with Cary without the huffing and puffing that comes with running and chatting. By the way, if you ever run with me, just know that running and talking is going to happen - it seems like when my legs start running, my mouth does, too. I just can't help it!
*I contacted the city about the halt in progress and was informed that the delay was due to a "material-related issue" but they hoped to get started in a few weeks. I sure hope so, as having a lighted path to run on will be so nice!
