You knew it had to eventually happen, right? Our trio of women, bold enough to run in the dark by the light of the full moon,* have morphed into an exclusive little running club. I’d like to officially present the Lunar B*tches Running Club! A few facts about our group:
- Frequency of meetings: monthly.
- Distance: 5-7 miles.
- Pace: varied depending upon conversation and hills, usually ~5.5 – 6.0 mph
- Benefits: personal sanity, grownup interactions, strong legs and tight butts.
- Qualifications: see above
Last night we did about 6.5 miles at a fairly consistent pace. We spent some time at Capital Hills which, aside from real-deal hills, also has the convenience of water stations (amazingly cold water stations) and a bathroom for a midway pit stop. The fireflies and soft rain added a bit of a magical touch to the run and we were three very satisfied mommies when we wrapped up our evening.
Already looking forward to August…
*we didn’t actually see the moon last night, but headlamps provide illumination in a pinch.
