Yesterday morning a local running store (Luke’s Locker) was having a breakfast taco run. I’ve written before about my love of tacos + running, so yes, I did get up at 5am to partake.
When I showed up, I was half asleep, but I saw a few friends. One of them is the super speedy Dr. Logan Sherman. And when I say he’s speedy, I mean like, his last half marathon was…1:07…he literally races with the Kenyans…
As we started our run, I decided to try and hang with him and a couple other dudes. I had originally planned on going 5 miles, but they were doing 9. We had a nice little pack going (luckily Logan slowed down his normal pace quite a bit for us) and were around 7-7:15 per mile when I had to turn to
get back to the tacos head back after about 3.5 miles. I ended up finishing with 7 miles at a 7:30 pace average – pretty good – especially since I hadn’t planned to run that far or that fast that morning!!!
It was great running with those guys and it was very nice of Logan to take it easy on us! And of course, TACOS!!!!! All the tacos! Tacos 4 life! All day taco day! …Sorry, I got excited for a sec.
How bout you? Ever go to a run for an incentive? Ever try to run with folks who you know might be going further and faster than you normally do? Is there ever a bad time for tacos?
