I work with a good friend of mine....and usually we have the good fortune that we do not have to actually work on the same projects. But this year, I am sponsoring two projects for which she is project manager. As much as our friendship is usually harmonious....at work we are both very different people in the way we get things done. We have been at a stalemate on an issue for the last few days, and it came to a head this morning and we both had a bit of a confrontation. This afternoon we had planned on going for a run after work...and despite the fact we were both still quite grumpy at each other we decided we would still go. The first 20 minutes were spent running, and bitching at each other, and the 20 minutes back was spent talking and joking about one of the stupid things we had done on the weekend. Its amazing how much just changing the environment and doing something enjoyable together cleared the air, and ironically we came up with a better solution that what we have been toying with for the last few days....oh and we also clocked one of our furthest and fastest runs to date!!
