Stumblers

My half marathon training has been bringing me some pretty long runs these past few weekends, so in the interest of not running lots of laps, I joined my friend JB and the Todd's Road Stumblers running club at 7:00 am on Saturday to do my 11 mile run. The Todd's Road Stumblers are a running club that meets every Saturday to run, hang out and eat donuts. What's not to like? I even got a free t-shirt for it being my first time out. It's so beautiful out there and there are lots of hills which is good considering the flying pig has a real big hill. The roads are marked every half mile, so I can run out as far as I need to and then head back, and I don't have to do any laps and I have to finish my run in order to get back to my car. The folks there were real friendly, making me actually look forward to waking up at 6:00 am this weekend to go run my 12 miles.(That and the fact that I will be able to eat a donut this weekend since lent is over!) Only three more weekends of training til the big race!!!
