I ran with the big boys today

The deeper I get, the faster I want to be. Today was a good confidence booster. Hank and I headed down to meet some of the other Goons to Boxborough. It was nice too run with different people in a different place. Boy did we run with different people. We ran with guys who I consider the 'elite' of the Goon Squad. Despite getting lost for about 2 miles, I kept up with these guys - and I'm quite happy about it. My watch got pretty messed up some how but there were many points were I looked down during the run where I was solidly in the 7s and a time where I looked down and saw under a 7 minute pace. At the end of the run, I thanked the 'elites' who in turn gave me some serious props. It felt good and I can't wait to do it again!
