The dust is finally settling from the haze that was the past 2 months. Between weeks of sickness rotating between our combined 6 kids, injuries, and round 2 of unemployment woes, the Beast and I have not seen much of each other. We've gotten a few workouts together in, and she was all set to crew for us at Diablo (we know how that went), but that is about it!
Tomorrow, we run again!! Moms gone wild on the trail! Her youngest is now on a bike, so she is jogger stroller free these days. Mine is in training wheels and not trail ready. I am only a TAD envious of her hands free running. I can only imagine how much MORE speedy she will be. I was already taking a beating, so it should be interesting : )
I am so excited to get back to our routine. Having a running friend is really a special thing, they just "get it". I can say things like "another toe nail came off yesterday, it was really cool", or "my right butt cheek has been spasming" and I don't get the strange looks I get when I share the same thoughts with non runner friends. Strange. In return, I do not bat an eye when she drops down to the sidewalk in the middle of the park to show me a new push-up variation she has learned. Just another morning with my running friend. To each other, we are totally normal : )
Looking forward to a 'normal' Thursday morning run.
