Running with a Friend
Normally, I am a solitary runner. The first two years of running, I only ran with others during races. Timing of group runs never fit my schedule or training. And I loved running alone. It was my time--a time that was all about me. I don't remember the first time I ran with someone on just a regular every day run. Yet that run opened a door in my mind. Maybe running with someone would be positive. My schedule still doesn't match group runs. However, I have begun to make running friends. And, once in a while, our schedules matched. Today was one of those days. We ran along the Columbia River in Vancouver. It was pouring rain and wind, but it was so much fun. I ran taller because she was with me. We talked about this, that and everything else. I have not enjoyed a run so much in a long time!
