Like I Never Left

I thought that my run tonight would be extremely difficult since I hadn't done anything for over a week. To my delight it went wonderfully. We did 4 miles at a steady pace and I didn't fall out! I had a moment where I thought I might not make it but that faded fast.

I love running with friends, especially after a long day at work. All the deadlines, obligations, and frustrations just fade away while I am out there running and having great conversation. I always feel better after a run, no matter the distance. I feel good that I have made the effort to do something for my body and for my health.

Running is like an old friend; although you may not speak for a while, when you get together it is like you never left.

I love running after work. Although my friends think I am nuts for running at all, but it does melt the stress from the day away. Now if it will just get warmer :)

Yay! Running must be like...riding a bicycle?

Glad to hear you had a good run! I run by myself. I only have 1 friend who is a runner and our schedules never seem to coordinate.

@ Stan - I'm ready for it to get warmer too!!

@TBC - LOL, you are silly

@Sarah - You should try to find a local running group; that's where I found some of the greatest running friends
