Today I am linking up with Becky for Women Connect. When I read about her link-up yesterday I knew immediately what I wanted to write about. And then after my run later that afternoon with Lauren, I knew I had picked the right topic.
I talked all last week about how I have been running lately. I have hit the one week mark of running and I have already hit 1 mile. And this week I have high hopes of getting to 1.25 and maybe even 1.50!
Those may be small numbers for all you runners, but it is all HUGE to me. I am so proud of myself for doing this, and even more proud that I am falling in love with it! I do not know how I have gone my whole life without running!
All this being said I owe a lot of my success to one person. Lauren. She is one of my best friends, and I could not have done any of this without her. She is so encouraging and amazing!
We both started running at the same time, so we are on the same level which has been great. We push each other, challenge each other, look out for each other, and we are in this together! I love her so much for doing this with me!
How could I ask for more in a running partner? I LOVE seeing women helping women, and I love even more being part of that. I look forward to the rest of the semester of running with Lauren and all the encouragement from it!
