Since I was out of town and missed my first group training last weekend I was quite excited to meet up with TNT this Saturday for my first group run. I am going to need their support when the mileage gets up to that 15, 16, 17 etc mark so I was looking forward to seeing how it would be on Saturday. We met at Road runner sports this week to have  shoe clinic and make sure our footwear was dialed in before we start upping mileage. MUST have good shoes. After they talked to us about running shoes we set out for a 3.25 mile run. It was perfect weather for a run. A little overcast which kept it cool but comfortable. My pace was about 9:30 per mile which for being basically my first run outside I am ok with. I would like to get it down to 8:30 to 9 minute miles for the race but this is  a good place to start to build some base mileage and to start building my endurance. Feeling good so far so I will keep you posted. Here are a couple shots from Saturday. More to come!
