The last time I ran 3 miles I vomited. My exercise partner while very sympathetic kept pushing to get me to finish.
Yesterday I ran 2 miles or attempted to. Less than 1/4 mile into it my exercise partner and I came upon a yard sale. We scoped all the treasures, made friends, and set our $6.00 pile aside to come back with cash. We ran (she did great I sucked wind), talked, ran, walked. Then we stopped to get cash and found another yard sale. Walking home with our $20 worth of goodies in hand we couldn't have been happier.
I love all of my partners. I get both my physical and spirtual needs feed. Thanks to you all for getting me motivated.
My favorite quotes from my sister partners (you can guess who I exercised with yesterday)
Tami, "It's ok it you need to walk. It's hard to talk when we're running anyway'.
Ruth, "Keep thinking how good your ass will look"
Alice, "You've done this once, you can do it again"
Megan, "You are doing so great, I am so proud of you"
