Anyway, now that I'm home, showered, fed, and have all 3 kids in bed, I can say that it went pretty well. There were 7 of us all together, 3 guys & 4 girls (oh, and 1 dog with purple nails to match her owner's... not really a relevant fact, but interesting none-the-less). We met at the law school and headed over the Autzen footbridge and on to Pre's Trail. I don't know exactly how far we ran, because we went off on all different sort of trails and I can't map it like I normally would a run, but we ran for 40:34 minutes and I'm quite positive we weren't running 10 minute miles, so I would imagine we ran between 5 - 6 miles... which would put it between 7 & 7:45 minute/mile pace... doable, but not comfortably. Which I think, probably sums up my run... I survived, but not comfortably.
There were a couple of times where I would've been perfectly happy to stop and rest or maybe even take a short nap in a ditch but, for better or worse, my pride kept me going (that and the fact that I knew Dan was at home, sick, and trying to take care of our three kidlings... pobre cito). So, it was fast but it was good for me and I enjoyed having conversations with grownups about grownup things. If I recover by next Thursday I'll probably go again. However, the real question will be, with or without Leona?
