First of all, got my new Forerunner yesterday, and I'm DYING to try it out! Damn rest days... Will have to wait until tomorrow morning to take it out for a spin. Between a new gadget and new shoes, I should totally be able to take a minute per mile off my usual pace, right??? Okay, maybe not, but a girl can dream :)
So, I've never had an official running partner before. My mom and I used to run together a lot when I was living back in Philadelphia, but that was a LONG time ago. Well, I met a girl through mutual friends a few months ago, and we started running together in mid-July. We get together at 5:45 am three times a week for a 3.5 mile run. It's so fun to have someone to run with! We work well together since she loves to talk while we run, and I love to listen (I'm not so much a talk-while-running person, maybe because I'm not used to having anyone to talk to?). I think she's a BIG reason why I'm finally consistent this time around in my quest to get back into running. I'm so grateful to have found her!
A blog about running buddies would not be complete, however, without including a shout-out to my OTHER running buddy, Athena:
She can't WAIT for me to get faster - then she'll actually be able to run rather than fast-walk next to me :)
