We had our first Team training this morning at the Booty Loop. Yes, that's what it's called. My suspicions about the origin of the nickname were confirmed when I was told that this particular stretch of road in Charlotte earned its name thanks to the numbers of people (safe to assume they're also somewhat good looking) and co-eds that jog in the area. Apparently, it's the place to be "seen". If you've read about my strong dislike of running and my very slow pace, I have no desire of being "seen" while doing so, so I'll be doing that part of my training elsewhere!
Meeting and running with the group was a great motivator! The coaches are encouraging, which I totally need, and it's...dare I say... fun? We ran for about 30 minutes and as much as I didn't want to get up at 7 on a Saturday morning, it sure feels good to feel accomplished at 8:30am!
I'm going to start taking some pictures as the trainings continue to (hopefully) jazz up my posts a bit. Perhaps I'll include some pics of the 'booty' at the loop to encourage you to come back and read!
