Am I doing enough? I just don't know? Am I doing all that I can? I think so. This new run group is like having a tiger by the tail! Saturday runs are totally new territory for me. In the past, I have been with really large groups of mediocre runners. This really didn't push me very much.
Now, I am in a small group of fast runners. Last weekend, we did 10 miles. I was in the middle of a pack of about eight runners. This weekend, another 10 miles. I was the last in a pack of about six runners. Crazy thing is, I passed a ton of runners from my former running group (from three years ago). This got me to thinking...basically, the conclusion I have come to is...I'd rather be the slowest of the fast group of runners, than the fastest of the slow group of runners.
I don't know if that makes sense? I do think I am getting faster I just hope it's enough to qualify for Boston...I still have a long road ahead of me:P
