When Training Runs Meet the Holidays

Today was the 3rd week of the Potomac River Running Winter Training Program. Since it is our last run before Christmas we had a holiday-themed run and people brought the festive today! They also brought cookies, muffins, hot mulled cider and all sorts of goodies that we enjoyed post training run.

I ran with the 5k/10k runners again today. Last week my group ran 40 minutes using 3:2 run:walk intervals. This week we moved up to 50 minutes, same intervals. I'm very proud to see folks progressing and feeling more confident in their running abilities. Great job, =PR= runners! I'm proud of you.

Here are some fun photos from the day:

Coach Mike, Natalie & Rachel  - FESTIVE!

Sallie as Tigger - more important than the holiday theme is
pre-testing a race costume (she put layers over Tigger for warmth).
Sallie has her first marathon next month & ran 20 miles today!!

And if this looks like fun...just wait until our Frozen-themed run next month! I'm already planning my Elsa outfit.
