|L to R: Oscar, Maggie, Amanda, Genevieve, Lisa, me|
I was super ecstatic to test out my new running gloves. #runnerd
The pacing worked out well for the group as Maggie and I are about the same and Lisa and Amanda were about the same. As it looked like it was going to rain, I'd say Maggie and I had a classic case of "great minds think alike" and wore the same rain jacket.

We were aiming for 4 miles and I decided to turn on my Endomondo, to test out the "pep talk" feature I've heard so much about. When we reached mile marker 1, I had forgotten I was wearing my headphones. When the electronic voice started to say "One mile completed..." I screamed and jumped. Maggie started looking around the trail, wondering what freaked me out. We started laughing once I realized it was my Endomondo. I decided then that it was a better idea to turn it off and not get freaked out on a dark trail while running at night
The next interesting part of this run was that I had to make a small pit stop in the woods. I apologize if this is TMI but the bathrooms were closed and it was an emergency situation. After jumping back on the trail as if nothing had happened, I didn't notice anything until we stopped at the turnaround a few feet down the road.
Currently, we are in the midst of a snowy day. I am planning on running 10 miles tomorrow, and hopefully the weather will have cleared up a bit by then. Hopefully I actually remember to take some photos this Saturday. We'll see! Happy Friday everyone!
ALSO, I feel the need to mention Maggie's huge "favorite things" giveaway. To enter to win, you donate $5 to her American Cancer Society page and every $5 donation is 1 entry. This raffle is kind of a big deal and you should totally participate. (I mean, even SR mentioned it on her blog.) Best of luck to all of those participating!
