I latched on to the group that seemed to think they were the slowest (still faster than my usual pace choice). I'm glad I gave it a go because we ran 5.3 miles at a sub 10:00 min/mile pace. I have not done a run that averaged less than 10:00 min/miles since the end of July! We even had a few mile splits that were 9:30 min/miles. I guess I have a little bit of "speed" in the legs after all. So my running is making steps in the right direction. Besides the nice pace we had some good conversation which is the whole point of group runs.
