Today was awesome!
I asked one of my seniors if she’d like to run with me today and she agreed. We met up on the track and I told her my plan. Originally, she was reluctant to try the 8K training podcast, so I told her she could run as far (or for as long) as she wanted, and I would continue. She told me she usually runs about 3K or so; “that’s fine,” I said, “I will continue where you leave off.”
Well, I am very proud to say that we both reached new milestones today. We ran for a total of 6K!! I was so proud of her, and of course, so proud of myself! It was great having a running partner again…we just talked the whole distance and didn’t really notice how far we had gone until it was well past 5K. “Wanna finish up at 6?” I asked. “Sure!” she replied.
And thus, another mid-distance runner was born. 🙂
