Since my Instagram feed is pretty much all run-related, a lot of my friends have picked up on that. Invitations to all of the group runs have been extended to anyone who has the slightest urge to run. So when a couple of my friends invite me to run some miles in a new location, I’m all about it!
I’ve always wanted to run Lake Elizabeth, a local lake not too far from where I just moved. It’s about 2 miles all around and full of lovely scenery with plenty of birds, families, and fitness. We kept it at a comfortable pace so that we all could complete 2 rounds around the lake. It was a gorgeous winter day and we even saw a decorated tree on the course!
It was great to get out there and be motivated by my friends. It’s not about how fast you go, or whether you are a “runner”, because all that matters is that you are out there doing it with each other. We definitely will be collecting more miles together at Lake Elizabeth in the future!
