With summer training already in progress, I was pleasantly surprised by the volume of new registrations.
Coach Steve proceeded with some running basics and then he went over the ChiRunning body looseners that we do before every run.
He let us know Runner's High is now matching competitor prices and the store has extended their return policy so if a shoe doesn't work for you, you can return it regardless of when you purchased it - within reason.
I started off running with a couple, Brian and Stacey, and their friend Rose Ann.
After awhile, Rose Ann and Stacey fell back, and Brian and I went ahead.
As we ran, Brian explained how he and Stacey had started running.
We ended up doing 8.55 miles. It was one of those comfortable runs where you take it easy but you feel satisfied at the end.
When we returned to Marina Vista Park, Mentor Matt led the post-run yoga.
It felt really good to stretch out on my yoga mat.
