A New Runner?

My wife who supposedly hates running has started to get into it, thanks largely to the Nike training runs. She is even encouraging her friends to run and surfing the Web for clubs and running events. She now wears serious Asics running shoes, an armband for her Walkman phone, and seems eager to get a runner's watch.

After hanging with the 3 mile 11 minute pace group for the last couple of weeks, she advanced to the five mile group while attending this evening's session in Hermosa Beach. She borrowed my watch and now has proof that not only she can do it (first time in her life), but at nearly a 10 minute per mile pace!

I need to start pushing my pace or my wife will soon pass me!
