Would you rather:
A) run around a 400 meter track 6-8 times doing speed work on a hot summer evening?
B) run around a lake to get ice cream on a hot summer evening?
Well, my answer is B without a doubt. I do know that track running is good for you but I am not a fan of it at all. Going round and round the same circle I find boring. I find track workouts hard which makes them good for me but my preference would be hill repeats.
Since the end of April I have only been to one run club workout. The month of May I was taking my Fitness Theory course and then I went to one run club workout just before I ran the Whistler Half Marathon. I have missed seeing my fellow runners each week but I have found that I needed to just run for myself and not make my runs feel like they were work. The summer mornings are perfect for this.
Earlier this year I was nominated to be the Social Director for the club. I was happy to take on the role because I am a social person. I love getting people together and any opportunity to take a picture I am there. Last night was the annual ice cream run to Ice Cream Mountain. I had been looking forward to this social run. I LOVE ice cream and I LOVE running so this is a winning combination for me.
We have a group on Facebook so I posted a week or so ago letting everyone know about the event. A few commented and said that they would be out for the run and I was happy about that. Well, last night was the second time that I took part in the run and the group was larger than it was last year. Seems that a lot of people would rather run for ice cream than run the track!
It was great to see so many people out and I got to meet new people to the club as well. I made sure to make my rounds and catch up with everyone. It was a fun evening and glad I could be a part of it.
Are you the social person in your group and like to organize events?
What is your favorite kind of ice cream?
