The weather forecast all week predicted 40* and a steady rain for today. Sarah and I love to run together and had made plans while back to meet for a 10K this morning.
I emailed her earlier this week with the simple question: "Do we run in rain?"
Her response: "YES!"
So when I packed up my bags yesterday, I packed lots of outerwear. Had I planned a run by myself, I would have definitely stayed high and dry, but Sarah is hardcore and had her last long run of marathon training to do rain or shine, so Matt and I braved the elements with her.

We ended up having a fabulous run (don’t you always have great runs when you least expect them!?) We ran 6.2 in 53:10 – probably a new record for me! Sarah’s Polar watch said our pace was 8:35 and my Garmin said 8:40 so take your pick We hit some killer hills! I raced in the last 1/2 a mile at a sub-8:00 pace and my legs are sure feelin’ it now.

We quickly showered at Sarah’s before heading out to the KERF Brunch
At the Mad Hatter
I decided on a big bowl of fruit, yogurt + granola. Can’t beat it!! The granola was homemade and the whole dish was wonderful. I ate every drop!
I got a huge cappuccino as well
And a bite of Matt‘s savory feast
After brunch we stopped by the Chapel Hill Great Harvest to say hello. This nice bear welcomed us in
Time to hit the road, Jack.
