Running Birthday Pirates

I may have mentioned I work a less than regular schedule.  For the most part, I set my own hours, but there are a few events/classes I have to be a part of each month.  And those events sometimes collide all within the same week.  Last week was one of those weeks.  Plus, there was my younger daughter Sassy’s birthday, a pirate-themed employee party,

(Sassy won 4th place in the costume contest!  OMG Becky was too cool to compete officially.  My dress had a pirate ship on it, but I wasn’t in an actual costume.)

a school dance and a PTA meeting.  Everything collided at once making for a very long week, full of very long days.

But it’s finally over!  For this month anyway.  And now I can relax a bit and get a few things for myself done.  Actually part of the busyness included joining a running group.  This group is training for their first 5K next month.  We run together two mornings a week.  I thought it would be a good opportunity to build up my hip.  It’s been fun!  I’ve never run with a group before.  And I like trying new routes and the challenge some of the have presented.  We also do a bit of strength training, too.  I really hope the group wants to continue running together after the race.

Do you like running with a group?  Do you run with a group on a regular basis?
