I work for a gigantic company. Working for such a large company has its perks, but those perks don't always trickle out to the 12 different buildings the company occupies. I work in one of the only buildings that the company doesn't solely own. Which means, we are the only building without a cafeteria and until recently, the only building that did not have free workout facilities.
I applied and received my free lockerroom pass so that I could run with friends at work during lunchtime. I got my pass about a month ago. Yesterday was the first day I used it. I met my dad (who also works for the big company), Rich (retired from said big company), and Darryl (also works for big company) and ran 5 miles. It was a rough 5 miles as it was super windy and we had to run fast to get in 5 miles during our lunch break. This was my first run back since the marathon and 8:00/miles is not what I was expecting. I felt great, though, and I'm not even sore today.
I don't know that this will become an everyday thing, but I enjoyed the break from work and getting to run with people on a weekday.
