Group Run

I went out today with the North East Running training Group, I always have miss feeling about group runs, since I am not very fast will there be someone to run with, it is kind of hard to drive 40 mins only to end up running by myself. Well, I did most of this run by myself, had a couple of problems it started snowing when we started running and since I had a beanie on and not a cap, the snow was building up on my glasses which means I couldn't see(no wiper on glasses to remove snow) and with everything I had on being wicking I couldn't even clean my glasses. I was running behind a group until about mile 3, when I noticed a restroom, but someone was in it so waited for about 3 mins for her to get out so I could get some toilet paper to use in wiping my glasses, which means now the group was completely gone and I was definitely on my own, I know it was an out and back, I just have to get to 5 miles and turn around. I was concern about the last 2 miles since that was in a residential area and I wasn't sure where to turn but once of the runners came back to bring me back since he knew I was new and didn't know the area.

The run back was miserable, since now not only was it snowing it was also windy, I ended up taken my glasses off since I could see a thing, at least with them off I could see right in front of me. the neighborhood roads weren't plowed so it was like running through mud I was just ready to be done. I did enjoy meeting the group but not sure if it was worth the 1 hour 20 mins trip to run by myself.

We do take a lot of things for granted by running through the neighborhood in Concord today with so much snow on the roads, I realize how lucky I am that the Solon City Snow crew takes cleaning the side streets as important as the main street.

Great that you got the run in, and I bet it built your character a bit.
