Remember to share the paths!

Last night in the Twin Cities, the temp was 80 degrees, and EVERYONE was out running by the lakes. With the running paths still wet or muddy, many people were on the bike paths. As I learned, this is workable ONLY if people make a concentrated effort to move to one side when people are approaching.

I'm very guilty of this myself--I tend to play chicken with approaching runners and be a total path hog. If you're running in a group, remember to shout out "Bike!" or "Runner!" or "large german shepard!"

In other news, how is Grandma's training going for those who are running it this year?

Awesome! Are you training by yourself, or with a group?

I'd like to add that if you are running in a group horizontally across the path taking up the whole thing and come up to a single runner such as myself coming in the opposite direction, please step behind one of your friends so I don't have to go off the path into the mud to get through.

Anyways, I did a 9 miler last weekend and I had to remember that even though it seemed unbearably hot, it is just the beginning of the heat :)

Yeah, that's another thing I don't miss about the cities is how crowded paths like that can get. I do kinda miss running around the lakes, though.

Grandma's training is going great! This weekend is a 16 miler :) I'm doing a lot more pace-aware runs this time around and I really like it.
