After this morning's weekly Long Beach SparkTeam walk, the Green Girl met up with Chris from What I Run Into and Rad Runner Girl at the Shoreline Pedestrian Bikepath.
I met Chris on the course of the San Francisco Half Marathon. I was running and she happily ran up beside me to ask me if I was The Running Green Girl. I was flattered by the recognition and felt like a mini-celebrity.
The morning was overcast and chilly - the Green Girl's ideal running conditions.
We headed out on the beach path towards the Shoreline Village.
The conversation came easily, as it always seems to when runners are among other runners.
We followed the loop around the Shoreline Aquatic Park with the Queen Mary in the distance.
Chris will also be doing the Disney Princess Half Marathon so the three of us chatted about the upcoming race.
After we all parted ways, I grabbed a bite to eat and then decided to take advantage of the weather by getting some additional mileage in.
I had gotten a few more miles in when it started to rain. Cars splashed past me as I ran along the edge of Shoreline Drive.
I'm grateful for running and all the opportunities running has afforded me like meeting other awesome runners like Chris.
