Infidelity...

I've been betrayed.....I like to think of myself as a good running partner. I stay with my running partner when she's having a bad run. I send encouraging emails and facebook wall posts. I try my best to do all the things that I believe a true running partner should do.

So you can imagine my surprise and hurt when I caught my running partner cheating on me. And to make matters worse it isn't even that I had to "catch" her, she was just blatantly flaunting her affair in my face! Here's how it went down......

The run starts off as normal, we're both complaining about our aches and pains. (my calves are killing me, I have determined I need some new shoes) I definitely was feeling very sore so I didn't think twice when she suggested that we run with two of our other running group members that were running a little bit slower than our normal pace. This is where it takes a turn for the worse. About 2 miles into the run (where we got to see a mama deer and her 2 babies!) I notice that my running partner is starting to pull away with one of the other runners from our group. It kinda bothers me but I'm having a good conversation and it isn't like she left me all alone so I didn't mind TOO much. It was when we finished that I realized the true extent of the betrayal......

She had given him one of her bottles of sports drink! I know this may not seem that serious but if it doesn't that is because you don't understand the rules of running buddies. I have decided to let this lapse in judgement slide because we have a very long run on Saturday and I care about her too much to make her do it alone. Just don't let it happen again!

Oh, and the runner she left me for already has a running partner who may not appreciate someone trying to push up on him. I will be sure to inform her of this incident!

LMAO.....
