Skirted Group Run


I have been pining over joining a running club for the last year.  I was a member of a great group in NYC and really missed the company and chat on the run.  Today I finally got up the nerve to venture out for a group run.  We ended up doing about 7 miles (see above picture) through Presidio on trails I didn't even know existed.  I'm planning on going next week and if there seems to be a nice contingency of runners in my pace group I'm planning on joining.  Hopefully it works out because this seems to be the only running group in San Francisco that has runs that fit into my work schedule.

Yes, you read that right.  I ran 7 miles today.  I did a 5 mile run on Friday which was supposed to be my "long run" and was only planning on doing five tops today.  But we did a little bit of walking up some of the steep sections so overall it felt really good.  Huzzah!  There were a fair bits of ups and some serious downs so I'll probably do an easy 2 miler tomorrow.

I attended today's run in my new Atalanta running skirt.  I've been a longtime fan of Runningskirts.com skirts but have been hearing a lot about Atalanta skirts and decided to give these skirts with shorts under them a try.  I have to say I am very happy with this new company and their great product and am looking forward to more runs & skirts.  I think I'm more of a briefs-under-the-skirt gal than a shorts-under-the-skirt kind of person, but there will definitely be days when the shorts will be handy.  So now I'm addicted to two brands of skirts.  Help me.

7 miles and a new running group -- Woot! That is awesome.

One of these days I should try a running shirt. Maybe I'll put one on my Xmas list. Sorry I know that's not helping you, though.

Congrats on the run and I hope the new group works out for you. If nothing else you've still made some new running friends.

So you finally found a running group that works with your schedule! Yay!!! I wondered if you picked one. That route looks longer than 7 miles, though. Great job on your run! :-)
