At the beginning I was very confused. I didn't know if you ran on clinic nights, or just met up. And I didn't know where to go when all the people went outside of the store and divided up. I eventually found my group and felt like a tool because I had brought my purse with me (which I later stashed in my car and grabbed my run pack). At least I had dressed for a run, just in case.
We just did a 3K run at a very, very slow pace. It was actually much slower than I expected, and to be honest I was relieved. At first I felt so uncomfortable. Everyone seemed to either know each other or at least had come with someone. I was alone. Eventually one woman sidled on up to me and engaged in conversation. I really appreciated that. From there on I had tidbits of conversations with a few of the runners.
But, most importantly, I made it! Quite well actually. I thought I would suffer some, but once I settled into a rhythm it was good. Tonight is a drop-in run and we're supposed to do 3K tempo which will be a little more challenging. Then on the weekend it's 7K. We'll see how that goes.
