“A person should set his goals as early as he can and devote all his energy and talent to getting there. With enough effort, he may achieve it. Or he may find something that is even more rewarding. But in the end, no matter what the outcome, he will know he has been alive.” - Walt Disney

It's More Fun With Friends

Life has been busy the past couple of weeks.  I've been slammed at work, keeping up with my normal running training schedule, and adding in the swimming lessons.

Knowing that I tend to let things drop when I get busy, I talked to my friend S about the two of us becoming RPs (Running Partners) for our weekday runs in August.  She liked the idea and we now have a standing meeting at 5:15am on running days for the next few weeks.  That way we both get out early to get our run done and we're able to beat the heat.

Other than the obvious safety factor of not running alone in the dark (which I refuse to do), it's just more fun to run with a friend.  The conversation flows easily and the miles fly by.  It's nice to have a morning RP again!

Q4U: Do you complete your weekday runs with friends or do you go solo?


  1. Love running with friends! I used to meet up with a friend during the week after work until her schedule changed. Now most of my week day runs are spent solo.

    1. Makes you appreciate the ones you have company for, right?
