I had a bittersweet ending to the Social Boston Sports – 30 Day Fitness Challenge on Monday, 1/27.
Congrats to my friend Alan who won “Most Improved Male” for racking up the most points through his January work outs. (He’s crazy in shape, a November Project devote, and an inspiration for me. I’m looking forward to his upcoming blog post on the Social Boston Sports blog.)
Jess L. & I headed out for a 3 mile run, but we may or may not have gotten lost (OK we did, and it was my lack of directional sense to blame) but the run ended up being over 4 miles. That was OK though. We got in some pretty new views, like Charles Street. Boston at night is just beautiful!
Jess invited her friend Festus to join us on the run, and he tried to coach me not to walk as long as I did on my breaks between running. I did OK with my pacing though, because when I uploaded my run info from my GPS watch that night, it informed me that I had a new PR for 5K and it was the longest run I’ve logged.
After the run, I grabbed dinner & celebratory drinks with Jess, Festus, Alan, Daniella, and Mary.
SBS has a free community running club on Monday nights. I plan to head to those runs, once I’m able to get through running 3 miles without walking breaks.
