Last night, I had the choice between two social activities–both which were related to running.
Seriously, Five Years Ago Theodora is laughing at Now Theodora. Who ever would have guessed running would not only have become my primary source of cardio but also a big part of my social life?
The first option was a happy hour with running bloggers/Twitter people organized by Jocelyn.Â It was at Ginger Man, one of my favorite bars (I <3 beer), with some of my favorite people. I was all about attending, until Former Coworker Abby asked if I’d go to the Girls on the Run fundraiser she was helping host. I mean, I couldn’t say with a good conscience, “Sorry, I’m going to happy hour.”
If you’re unfamiliar with GOTR, they’re an awesome group that uses running to change the way young girls feel about themselves. I’d love to coach with them, but realistically, know I don’t have enough time and don’t want to let the girls down.
Their fundraiser was held at The Ainsworth, and they FILLED the place! They also had lots of awesome auction items, of which I won none. Which is probably for the better.
Oh hey Former Coworker Abby!
This morning, I met up with Nicole, who’s in town for work, for a fab four miles. I’m not yet ready to call myself a morning runner, but I’m getting there!
