1. Not a lot of actual running involved. Far more chatting.
2. Perfect weather. Perfect. Like, favorite running outfit perfect.
3. Highest mileage of the season -- 6 miles!
4. Too early in the season for bugs.
5. Too early in the season for expectations about speed (not that I have those late in the season either, but this way I have an excuse).
6. Getting to catch up with a friend without spending too much money on wine or eating anything horrifically bad for me.
