another 6km not tracked...

but I could care less because it was a part of my 10km clinic with the running room... that i LOVE! I was so scared that I'd be at the back of the pack and embarrass myself or something but it was completely the opposite. I ran in the front group and felt totally comfortable. Actually, I felt like I was running slow, but that's probably a good thing. The great thing was it was a group of people JUST LIKE ME - not running superstars (although from the looks of it, some thought they were :| ). All in all, they're just guys and girls who have run 5km races and who want to improve endurance and not get left behind, meet new people and stay healthy. I felt so silly for feeling nervous all day about the clinic and wondering why didn't I try this sooner?!

Way to go babe!

I find I meet some of the most interesting people at clinics. And what better way to get to know someone while running... makes the time fly by!

Bah, I find it really easy to talk myself out of things because I think everyone else there will be better/smarter/prettier/thinner than me...I am so glad that you are doing this, and ENJOYING it!!!

AWESOME!! I'm glad it went so well!! Good for you for not letting your nerves hold you back and get in the way of doing something you love!! :-)

I totally agree with what Jen said up there, I think that everyone will be better than me, so I sabotage myself and not do things that I could be doing.

But super yay for you for doing it and being awesome at it.

oh my good girl, have you at all been paying attention to your own running times? you are not anywhere near someone I would describe as a "slow runner", you are speedy girl and I'd love, love to have some of your incredible times! Of course you were at the front of the pack..duh!! ;0)
GO SKIRT!!

Wow Marie, that's really great to hear. I'm happy for YOU, because it sounds like you were pretty nervous about it, but it's also encouraging for me -- it makes me want to try one of their beginner courses. I've been quite tentative about it too, for fear I'll hold everyone up. :/

Why is your freaking Nike+ not tracking? Isn't that driving you bonkers? Sounds like the run ended up being fun, good for you :O)
