Today friend Peter suggested Tamami and I run his home 12 Km course with him. We had both raced 12 Km yesterday but as we both felt strong we jumped at the chance of running in a new place.
Last season Peter won our Association’s Age group award. I was a distant second. ( I won the year before). But today it was a pretty hard 12 Km and Peter had been relaxing on the beach of Bali whilst I had been putting in the odd jog.
It was really good to run along with a friend and chat all the way. Although if the truth be told I did most of the talking. 🙂
Today the pace was pretty easy but the return journey consisted of a number of testing hills. Excellent place to really hurt yourself. No wonder Peter was number one last year.
I found the temperature of 27 degrees very pleasant but I think Peter found it a little warm.
I think running with someone different and on a different course certainly adds to the joy of running.
