Three's company

Pre-workout fuel: Slice of whole-wheat toast with Peanut Butter & Co. Dark Chocolate Dreams and sliced banana, as well as Amaretto Cream roast coffee.
Workout: Ran 6.97 miles in 1 hour, 3 minutes and 17 seconds; average pace, 9:04.

For the first time in a month, there were three of us on this run - Mark, Denali and myself. Three "people" to celebrate the start of taper and go out for an easy 6 miles.

Along the way, we stopped three times - twice for water and once for a stoplight.

We saw three different kinds of wildlife - a beaver (!), birds (even baby cardinals) and bunnies. All of the animals seemed to tempt Denali's taste buds.

We saw three different kinds of athletes on the trail - hardcore runners, including what we assumed was the IPFW women's track team; recreational runners, like us; and cyclists.

Mark asked me three times how far we had gone. He's not used to this kind of mileage anymore.

About 6 miles in, the rain began, just a light sprinkle, and the three of us were grateful for such a refreshing end to the run.
