Running (Trail) 1:20:17  7.65 mi (10:30 / mi) +241m 9:34 / mi
MCRRC Winter Trails. From Watkins Mill HS, to the I-270 underpass, then back. Rd. and back on the Greenway Trail. The group was going to do 20 miles today. Peggy and I only had 80 minutes before we had to head home to get Max, and head back out to his basketball game. The run was okay. I felt unsure of myself for not running much all week. I started behind the lead pack and slowly let them get ahead. One guy had hung back behind me but after 2.25 miles, I felt like I was slowing and he passed. The initial part of the run going out was rolling and somewhat hilly. It was around 29 F so the trail wasn't muddy. On the way back with less than 2 miles to go, I caught Peggy. We ran together for a short while, then I moved ahead. The announcement for the run this week went out with another dire warning about water bottles being required even if one is planning on running short. Peggy and I carried ours empty.
