How Running is Supposed to Be...
...enjoyable! Once I discovered running with friends, I found my true calling! There is just something about sharing thoughts and feelings while pounding the pavement. I haven't been feeling great since about March, so I have had to do a lot of runs alone. I don't mind that every once in a while, and sometimes I need to be alone, but I have definitely missed my friends. I have great running partners in Oregon and am very lucky!
Today I was able to meet up with Heather(who is one of my Oregon running buddies also visiting Utah!), Kristyn (my sis in law!), and Erin (who I know and love from this site!). We took the picture after the run and we were missing Heather. We had one of the best runs I have had in recent months. It was a beautiful 10 mile run along Legacy Highway. If you live here, I completely recommend this path! The time passed very quickly and I so enjoyed the conversation. I needed this run! So, I wanted to thank the girls for joining me today and also all those who have run with me in the past. I learn from each of you!
How about the rest of you? Do you have good running partners? Do you prefer to run alone?
