I got to meet up again with the White Rock Running Co-op for an early morning long run. We had a pretty big turnout for this one.
Some of us got there an hour early to get in some extra miles. I settled in with a crew going at a decent pace for me. We went 5 humid and hilly miles. Then we met up with the main group to run some more. By then the sun was coming up and it was hot as crap!
Oh, did I mention this run was hosted at a mansion?!?!
I added another 4 miles with the main group (That’s 9 total miles for all you arithmetic-challenged folks). I wanted to go further, but the heat and humidity really zapped my energy. I had to stop a few times to pour cold water on my head.
Luckily the mansion had a huuuge pool for us to cool off in.
I also got to catch up my pal Virginia (who’s also a runner). That’s another bonus of showing up to group runs ~you never know who you’ll run in to! (see what I did there?)
I also got to make some new friends. Ya know, cause we all need more people to talk about running with!
Anyway, like you could maybe see in my Vine above, the pool area also had a full outdoor kitchen with food, a keg, margarita machine, sand volleyball court, outdoor shower, etc. I felt like I was in an episode of Cribs!
And being that I’m so sophisticated, I was able to blend in…because I’m fancy as crap!
All in all it was a good time! Now I just need some more money so I can get a mansion and host runs. Maybe I’ll start a Kistarter campaign.
How bout you? Hang out at mansions much? How do you handle running in the heat? Who wants to pledge funds to my Kickstarter?
PS – It’s been crazy busy around here and so I’ve been “offline” the past few days. Can’t wait to catch up with everyone!
holy mansion!! that pool looks fantastic! I ran next to a river on Sunday and all I wanted to do was run right into it! If it weren’t for the shade I would have melted into the macadam! I’ll help fund your kickstarter if you move to PA and let me swim in your pooool!
