Well that was an experience (a positive one)! Signed up for a charity run with a friend as it was a) a good cause and b) a way to stay motivated post graduation.
overall it was quite fun - ran 5k - maybe under 30 minutes (times not posted yet). As it was cold and rainy here I decided not to strap my phone on my arm and to instead use my non-patented into a baggy and into the bra method. Well runkeeper was not at all happy and kept pausing and restarting (audibly for me). Although this was slightly distracting, I did not want to adjust too much as hard to do so while running and my running friend was male and was I think trying to ignore the whole phone in the bra situation.
this was the first time that I have run with someone else and I was surprised that I could talk most of the time.
I will definitely be signing up for more runs, I envy the majority of you your free park runs (we don't have those), what a wonderful way to get together and run, and to push yourself against your previous runs!
