Today was the first Group Training Session (GTS) of the season!!! I had to get up at 05:30 in order to make it on time. It was raining, I was chilled and grumpy at the skytrain. I arrived as we were just about to start and quickly threw my things down, running to catch up (ironic, eh?!)
We did 6k and once I started running all my grumpy-ness melted away. The rain was quite refreshing to run in and I talked to several of the group members that were at the same pace I was. Vancouver is so gorgeous, I sometimes am so busy I forget to look around. We ran along the seawall at Kit’s beach and having the ocean surround you even on a fairly ugly day is awesome. Afterwards we socialized and grabbed a bite to eat at one of the cafe’s on Granville Island. It was great to meet more team members! Once I got home and showered I felt energized for the rest of the day and was glad I made it out.
