Everyone is Trying It!

Last night, my wife ran home after work from the train station 3 miles away.  This was only her second run this year and the second run wearing her new Merrell Pace Gloves, so I was very impressed.

She was exhausted and excited once she made it home, pulling everything out of her skirt pockets (a non-running specific skirt at that) and exclaiming, “And…look at everything I had to carry with me!”

She went on to say that she really enjoyed combining the run with a short trip on the train as she ran into two colleagues and used the transit time to network.

Her legs were pretty sore that night, but she said they were fine this morning as she headed off to work.

Well done on your first run commute, Rebecca!

    This is great! My husband and I were just talking the other day about him using his bike commute as a run commute so he could get a long run in. Thanks for sharing! Plus it is good to know we are not the only ones out there. :)
