A fun evening. Kate and I met up with Val, Mindy, Ian and Nathan for a some running at the Back Cove. Kate wanted to get in some mileage before the Bradbury Breaker but she hates running roads and the deer flies have been awful lately on the trails. So, hence the plan to run the Back Cove...trails along a body of salt water without bugs to contend with. Erin met up with her so they could run together, which was great.
The rest of us did the first lap and Ian and Nathan called it good after one, but Mindy, Val and I tacked on another lap. They're all great company and the conversation flowed like wine as it always does.
I felt a little beat up that first lap and contemplated calling it good but was glad I did the second lap. I came around a little more and all systems go. Afterwards, we watch Blaine and some of the other runners come in who were running the 5K. Blaine crushed it.
When that was said and done, a bunch of us went to the Great Lost Bear for grub and drinks. Good times!
Ran 7.2 miles @ 8:27/mile pace.
