Wednesday is my 2nd favorite day of the week because it means we're halfway there!!
Lately, I've been feeling a little bit burned out. I expressed this to my friends Brandi and Regina. Turns out that they understood where I was coming from. And together we've come up with a plan to get things back on track.
The first order of business was "Turkey Tuesday". Turkey Mountain is known as "Tulsa's Urban Wilderness" Basically, it's an undeveloped area just 7 minutes from downtown and has a little something for everyone: trails for trail running and mountain biking as well as paved trails. There are some pretty steep hills!! My friends have been meeting there on Tuesdays for a while now. Last night was the first night that I've joined them. We were celebrating Melissa's "first run outside" since November 2012. She has been recovering from a nasty stress fracture.
When we arrived, it looked like we might be rained out but the storm passed us and blessed us with this beautiful view:
After everyone arrived, we had to socialize a little bit.
I hadn't seen some of them since April or May. We had a little catching up to do!

|Brandi said the hills could kiss her butt!|
Then, we started out on one of the paved trails. We ran out and back for 1.5 miles followed by hill repeats. I skipped the hills but it felt good to run with my friends again! I've been missing them and I think this just may be what I need to start feeling my mojo again!! I think I just might get by with a little help from my friends!!
Do you prefer to run alone or with friends??
