Running partners again. The second best people to run with are my buddies - some of my best friends (old & new) are girls that I run/ran with.
The conversations you are able to have while running are always more candid and open. Runners confide in each other, things they would generally never tell other people. Other discussion topics often include: bodily functions, parenting advice, family drama, general news of interest, etc. Basically nothing is off limits, and I love it!
Yesterday, my sister-in-law and I ran 9 miles at a fast-ish pace. As we began to see our end point in the distance we both started to get emotional. It was an accomplishment for both of us to hold the pace. Some miles we chatted, but for a few there was that awesome comfortable silence of both of us working through the distance in our heads. Such an awesome run!Good luck to all my lovely people out running the Twin Cities Marathon in Minneapolis today - thinking of you!
