Quote for the day

Nothing's better than the wind to your back, the sun in front of you, and your friends beside you.

Aaron Douglas Trimble, Runner

As you have heard a hundred times, I hate to run alone so the above quote today I felt was perfect for me.

It is hard for me to imagine how others get out and run and train all alone! Oh don't get me wrong, I have some in my group who will get up and run 20 miles all by themselves. I can just tell you that I wouldn't do it! A marathon would not ever have occured if I had to do that. I love to run but I love the company of someone right beside me. Like social drinkers, I am a social runner!

Happy running!

Hey there! New to your blog (found you on RunnerDude's blog). I've done almost all of my training for all 4 of my marathons by myself. I HATED it at first, but now I'm at the point where I like to be able to push myself in my own way on those (boring) 20 milers! That said, I'm JEALOUS that I don't have a running group to run with for the occasional social run!! Happy running to you to!

There's nothing like a long run with a bunch of your buddies. Some how those long runs don't seem nearly as far when you share them with others. But you know...even when I run solo, I'm not really alone, I often find myself thinking about the numerous runners who've share their stories with me. They inspire me on a long solo run! Happy Thanksgiving!
