I met a new friend, Janeth Alder today. She just moved to Boulder and is a BYU track and CC alumni just like me (just a couple of years before me). She is training for her first marathon this fall and has four kids around the same ages as my kids. Janeth just happened to join the Running Republic group and my friend Sarah told me there was another LDS woman in the group so I contacted her to meet up. We'll definitely be running again soon. I may even go to the Running Republic workout this Saturday and run easy just to say hi to everyone.
My back pain was even more severe today but at least running with Janeth (pronounced Janet) helped me keep my mind off it a bit. Muscle spasms in the back are the WORST! Argh.
