Double digits again

Another FB encounter to hold me accountable got me out the door at 5:30 this morning.  A couple newer runners were going out for their first 7 miler.  We tagged along.  OK, we invited ourselves and showed up.  :)  I figure if I can't get to a start line I can at least brief deadlines that I am meeting, right?

This has become my accountability this month, rather than long term goals of a race.  I haven't logged much for mileage so I am seeking other ways to get myself motivated and out the door.

This was a nice, slow pace (>12-min mile) for the first 7 miles.  At the end of their run I felt like I was just warming up so I wanted to push myself at a faster pace and complete my goal of 10 miles.  I think we grew accustomed to the slower pace because the Garmin kept reading 10:10ish pace or slower.  It really seemed faster than that.  I think I'm ready for a good hard long run sometime.  Nonetheless it was good to be in the double digits again.
