Easy like Sunday morning

Had some company for my Sunday morning long run today - Amber and I met down at Idlewild Park and did a ten miler along the Truckee River. I'm gonna be in huge trouble for posting this picture of her, but here you go. Wonder how she got her headband to match her car so well? :)



We ran on the south side of the river out to the Patagonia warehouse, pretty much paralleling the Reno Rock-n-river half marathon course that we both did this spring. We took a little detour, though, on a nature trail on Dorokstar Park - nice break, running on dirt right by the river. Then we crossed the river and came back on 4th street - a few more cars, but not too bad.

It was pretty chilly starting out at 7:30, but by the time we got back to the cars, we were both pretty warm. NICE day now, low 50s and sunny. I got in the shower when I got home, though, and was surprised at how cold my hands were - they stung for a while in the warm water.

Nice conversational pace - I'm not used to running with people to talk to, so I think I burned more calories just gabbing away. Thanks for the run, Amber. We should try to organize Team Library Dork...

Hey, thanks for running with me! I love to gab and run. And no, that is not my most flattering picture ever, so thanks for posting it where everyone can see. As for Team Library Dork, I have plans... ;)
