VR Group Run

This morning my friend Derek picked me up and we headed over to Lock 29 in Peninsula to meet up with the Vertical Runner group for a 7:00 run. The plan was to do 12 miles on roads (since the trails have too much snow), starting from Lock 29, heading south on Akron-Peninsula Rd., looping back around on Ira Rd., and then taking Riverview Rd. back to Main St. in Peninsula. Attendance was pretty good.. about 20-25 people or so. I ran most of the run with Vince Rucci (owner of Vertical Runner), Brandon Russell, a couple guys I met (Aaron and this teacher from Kent State), and about 3 or 4 others. Most of the run was around an 8-8:15 pace, but I was happy that I was able to do two of the last three miles (which are pretty hilly) around a 7:30 pace. My legs felt great during the run and even pretty good afterwards. I can also tell that my breathing is improving with the last couple long runs I've done on the road. I'm really looking forward to getting back on the trails though!
