At 11, I met my friend M and her husband J and their two kids. Four times around the track is one mile, ok, so I want to go around at least 12 times. This is where the boring comes in. Its a circle that never ends and the scenery is the same. I also was not a fan of having to keep track of which lap I was on. I am sure this sounds silly to most, so go ahead and laugh.
Today's Run and My Daughter, you know how she really wanted to run with me. Today was the day! She was so excited and she was able to wear her Girls Run....giggling all the way shirt for the first time. This alone, made the repetition of the track bearable.
I also, usually run alone, but today I had company and I liked it! I was slower than M and J, but just knowing they were there was very enjoyable. I think I may need to make this a regular part of my routine.
When I wrote Partners, it started out to be about running partners, but I didn't really have much experience on that so I changed it. I read constantly about women and their running buddies and I can see why they enjoy it. Get regular running buddy is now on my list.

When we were done and I started to stretch, J played baseball with my son and the girls got on the bike and went around the track again until my daughter fell.
I have to say, this was really a fun day. I got to spend time with my kids and friends while doing what makes me feel good and we were all happy. Three more miles in the history books and I am sure, record breaking temps in January. I love this weather and I hope it last a little longer. Snow is not my friend.

Next run will be Monday or Tuesday. Weather is still looking good, so they will, for sure, be outside runs.
So do you have a running buddy? Do you want to be mine?
Run strong, think big!
