Galloway Group Picture

Saturday, January 05, 2013

I got up at 4 am this morning to meet my running group at 5 am. We ran 8 miles at a comfortable 12.20 minute pace at walk 1 minute/run 2 minutes intervals. Then we returned to Starbucks in order to get this group picture of most of our Lakeland Galloway runners:



The rows are approximate, but the way I count it I'm the 5th person from the right in the second row. I have on a black jacket, my white hairs stand out against the black jacket behind me.

We ran 2.7 more miles after the picture. I really like these people. I really like the pace. I wish they liked to run at 6 or 7 rather than 5am especially in the winter, but maybe I can get used to it!! We'll see.

    Hmmm. I do routinely get up at 5 to be at the gym at 5:30 am . . . but gotta say, getting up at 4 could very well be a deal breaker for me too. Wonder why it's necessary: business commitments?

So great you've found a congenial group . . . and you'll figure it out!

    What a great group! I had no idea that the group was so large. I finally figured out where you are in the picture!

    wow, awesome Miss Marsha! Geez, I could not do 5am....still in a deep sleep. I would start lobbying for a later start.
Have a terrific Sunday.

    5 am is a little too early for sure! A nice looking bunch with what looks like a variety of ages and fitness levels. I did make you out, you have nice, thick hair, reminds me of my Mom's. So glad you enjoy running with them!

    I applaud you for getting up to run at 5 am! I will get up very early to get my walk in when I know I have something else that will interfere with my walk later on but not sure I could do it on a regular basis!

    Love seeing your smiling face! You have a good looking crew there, and being with friends is a wonderful part of the journey.

Jealous of your weather.

I ran my long and slow 11.8 miles outdoors in a sunny 32 degree afternoon. The pace was forced to SLOW at irregular intervals due to snow-pack and icy patches, but there were also long stretches of dry concrete. Very satisfied.

    Two out of three ain't bad...You like the people and the pace but not the time...maybe the ones at a different time you wouldn't like as much or they would change the pace. I bet you can learn to like the time for the other two. Either way, I wish I had your stamina to do it at all! Good going, Marsha! HUGS,
Gaye
