Day of Rest and Perhaps Something New ...

Yesterday I ran 3 miles on the trail with Krista and it was awesome! The weather was great, a little warmer than we both anticipated. Both of us had all black on, but it wasn't a big deal. The trail is still open feeling since the leaves aren't in yet. Really cool shadows were cast over our path. I wanted to take a picture, but I don't think Krista wanted to stop for blog picture-taking :)

Today I signed up to possibly volunteer with Girls on the Run. It's a really neat program that tries to mentor girls through exercise and positive attitudes. They do a few 5Ks during the spring, and what I volunteered for was to run a 5K with one of the girls in the program. The girls are trained by other volunteers (maybe I'll get to do that some day too) but need mentors to get them through their "practice 5Ks" and race day as well. It sounds absolutely awesome, and I hope I'm able to do it! The first 5K I know of is in April, but I am hoping there are more. I figured this would be a neat way to see what the program is all about, and hopefully be able to help with the fun!

Today is a rest day. I was going to bike, but my back still hurts so I thought I'd just give it another day.
The weather sure is great for it today though!

This is nice. Glad you are into something like this. Kind of like a big brother or sister thing but more dedicated to an activity, I am guessing. Maybe not quite as demanding.
