White Rock with Runner Susan!!!

What a fun run we had today! We had plans to meet up with Runner Susan for our weekly long run while we are in Dallas for a conference. We had plans to run at a local park called White Rock which she said was near our hotel. It took us a couple of u-turns to get there which was really funny as the directions kept saying, turn left then right then make a u-turn here.....well after us making several wrong uturns we figured out how to get to the parking at the lake. By the way, there was no need for the directions to say anything about turning anywhere, everything was on the same street!!!

Anyways, we ran around White Lake which was a perfect run ending up around 9.1 miles. It was so fun to run with someone from the Running Blog Family and we talked about other RBFers as if we mutually knew them, when we "know" them because we read their sites everyday.

By the way Susan is amazing. She ran a cool 4 miles in the morning and then met us for 9 miles later on ALL ON ONLY 4 HOURS OF SLEEP!!! That's tough. I have never done the two-a-days and am always impressed with folks that can get that in.

After the run we went back to the car and Susan had planned ahead and brought cold water for us! Jason and I never think ahead and then are really thirsty/hungry after our runs with nothing to snack on. Thanks again for that, Susan.

Thus ended our first RBF meet up...and here's looking forward to meeting up with more of you folks!
