This week’s Tuesday’s on the Run linkup topic is what I think is the best thing about running.
There are so many things I love about running, but the best thing is that I can do it anywhere with little equipment, no training and very little money.
Bonus, I can do it for years to come. There are very few athletic activities like that.
I also like that it’s one of the few sports that I can have a real conversation while you do it! Have you ever tried to a real conversation DURING a tennis match? Softball game? A bike ride? It’s not easy!
I wanted to add to my story from yesterday about meeting my running bestie, Lesley. Although my first experience with the running club was less than ideal, as with all things, it got better quickly. As I became a regular, people started talking to me more, encouraging me on runs, and cheering for me after workouts. It was wonderful to commiserate with a group during tough workouts and revel in a great workout together. I’ve made a lot of friends through this group that I never would have if I hadn’t joined. It’s hard to find a group of people that you click with, and I’m really blessed to have those people.
