Back Cove With the Gang

Though today is Tuesday, it's really my Friday since I have the next three days off for Thanksgiving. What finer way to kick off the holiday then a run with good friends? Ran with Ryan, Ian, Blaine, Mindy, Zak and Sean at the Back Cove.

Nice, relaxed pace and fun to socialize with everyone. The lights of Portland looked really scenic reflecting off the water on the far side of the cove. And nice to now run four days in a row, something I haven't done since early October. Legs are feeling great and ready for more. Happy, happy, joy, joy.

Ryan, Blaine and I headed to the Great Lost Bear afterwards for some grub and a few drinks, but they were wicked crowded and we didn't feel like waiting 40 minutes for a table so we left. Saw a killer shooting star just before we left though, the kind that breaks up and leaves a sparkling trail in its wake. Pretty sweet.

Ran 5.2 miles @ 8:29/mile pace.
Packed trails.
Slightly hilly.
Lower 40s to upper 30s, clear skies.
Nike Waffle Racer VIII, long tights, short sleeved shirt, long sleeved shirt.
