Morning Run

It wasn't quite this early but it felt it. I met up with a friend visiting from China. She's been doing Couch to 5k for about a month longer than me so is more advanced than me. But she agreed to meet up this morning and run. One word: Awesome. I forgot how great it is to run with a partner. Don't get me wrong, I am most definitely a solo runner. I enjoy my music and my contemplation as I run. But every once in a while it is nice to run with a partner. We chatted, although she did most of the talking by far, and it was great fun. The real benefit is that I ran farther and faster than I normally do and that is awesome. I had zero pain anywhere, probably because I just didn't think about it. And it was a beautiful morning. There were tons of people out this morning. Runners. Bikers. Women in scrub tops and shorts. Okay, I seriously do not know what that was all about but hey, scrubs are comfortable. It was an awesome morning out there.

It is runs like this that make me think I just might be a runner again some day.
