There is no better thing than a supportive running buddy who encourages you, challenges you, and never criticizes you, but pushes you beyond what you thought you could do! Lacey is my running guru (with a little help from Kenyan)! Thanks to her I started doing real speed work and have gotten so much faster, so yesterday was a real treat to run with her and Bug. 4-5 months ago I'd never have dreamed I could hang with her for any amount of distance, but yesterday we hung in together, slower than we know we can do in optimal conditions, but not too shabby still (considering the heat, the lack of cloud cover, and pushing our girls!!)!
Truly one of my favorite runs to date, the scenery around the BR lakes was pretty nice too! Just looking forward to cooler temps to go again!! :)
