20 Miles in the Rain!

Encouraging folks to run long distances, like 20 miles, is a tough challenge. There are doubts, concerns, and fleeting worries that stand in the way of completing the goal. Throw in some insane California weather - Rain Rain Rain!!! - and it makes for a tricky Sunday morning.

But that was the challenge of this weekend. Our TNT folks training for the PF Changs Rock 'n Roll Marathon on the third week in January had a 20-mile run scheduled. I knew I needed to lighten the mood a little.

Across the twitter-verse, my friend Lisa was in Texas, longing to be in Los Angeles (don't know why though, given the rain!). I had joked a while ago that we should "Flat Stanely" her for one of our runs.

So for our 20-mile workout from Santa Monica to Brentwood and back, we brought @bemadthen along for the ride! Below is the picture journal!
