This week I was the luckiest little runner. I got to run with not one….but two friends this week! Now this might not be a big deal to some of you but to this lone runner it was like winning the lottery for someone who usually runs solo. This week held a couple of tough runs for me because I wasn’t feeling great. This normally would make my mental struggle worse but not this week. My running pals have slower paces than me and lately this has been a good thing. this week was no different. It allowed me to slow down intentionally to not only not throw the towel in but also practice slower pacing. I am worried that lately I’m practicing too much slow pacing but I’m still figuring out my plan & my friends are part of the big picture. They also understand when I consistently blah blah about running ALL THE DAMN TIME! Love my running friends! Happiness is running!
