Celebrate with me!

I have a new running partner. She's fabulous. It's a girl from my yoga class. We started chatting and realized we are both runners. We went this morning and it was SO fun to talk my way through a run. It's unbelievable how time goes by so much more quickly when you are enjoying a good conversation while pounding out the miles. We are a perfect pace match, and isn't that the one hitch that can throw off a running duo? Oh happy day.

And yes, that is exactly how we looked running down the street.

(Okay, that's not how we looked. But that's how I felt when we were done!)

Hooray!

I'm so new to all this, it's going to take a while for me to be up to par for a running partner. I'm still so self-concsious, too.

Oh, but the goal is there... :)

I'm trying jubilation, but feeling a little envy too--friendly envy, of course! ;)

Talking through a run is definitely my choice, followed distantly by some pumpin' music on the ipod.

And the best thing about a brand new running partner is that there is so much in the conversational world to explore. You don't know anything about them, so no stories are old. Congrats.

Hooray for running partners!! There are times that I definitely feel like the girls in the pic. Usually due to lack of sleep! There was 6 of us mommies yesterday, and I was just thinking how cool it was to be there with all of them

Congrats to you!! Cherl, come join us anytime!
