Good for her!! And, even as a woman, I can say...she is beautiful!!
As for being slow...someone has to keep us company at the back of the pack! Send congratulations her way. Better yet, tell her to get her butt on the board & be excited about colored graphs & discussions about chafing & toe pain!!

Your toughness is made up of equal parts persistence and experience. You don't so much outrun your opponents as outlast and outsmart them, and the toughest opponent of all is the one inside your head." - Joe Henderson
All your non-self bragging is getting me worried. Are you alright? I've met many beginners through my club. The way I see it, if both of her feet were in the air at the same time, she's a runner, regardless of pace. Be nice to her because one day she'll kick your butt! Girl power! Woot! Did I just say that?
Roads were made for journeys...
And if she ever wanders into this forum, you're in soooo much trouble!
Real runners would keep going even if they found out it was fattening. (Okay, maybe not).
Now I have 15-20#s to lose and I KNOW it ain't muscle, 'cause my jeans are tighter than they were last Spring.
Immediately tries to figure out how to go running anyway. Two broken legs? Well, I'll just stretch a little, take an extra GU, maybe insert a few walk breaks. Legs ripped of by a bear? Well, I'll lay off the hill work for a couple weeks and work on my base. Nuclear war breaksout? The first question - what's the best hydration strategy for running through the fallout?
You're a riot! LOL!!!
