Today Mike and I ran with Isaac, who is awesome by the way and going to run the Mount Desert Island marathon with us in October. He had 11 miles on his training schedule (for the Boston Marathon, yea he's FAST) so he ran 4 miles before we met up with him.
We had decided to run around Eagle Lake on the Carriage Roads. My mom and dad told us to go to the right because even though there was a hill it was gradual and the downhill was better than going the other way.
The uphill was tough but I really enjoyed that downhill! Even though it was 25 degrees outside, I almost immediately took my hat and gloves off. Mike and Isaac thought I was crazy!
The run around the lake is a little less than 6 miles and I had wanted to reach single digits left to go to 1,000 so we added on a little bit more to get to 7.1 miles (for me and Mike).
We took a new photo of the three of us, so that I don't have to keep using the one from the summer, and we went our separate ways. Hopefully we'll get to see Isaac in April at Boston, if not we'll definitely see him sometime in the summer!
Now we're just relaxing and hanging out with my family for the rest of the day. Tomorrow we'll run with my mom and I'll be that much closer to my goal!
How are you staying active this holiday season?
