I’d have to say about 80% of my friends are active runners. A few weeks ago I had my first spend the night away from Ona. I went to Columbia, SC with some girl friends, Julie, Tracy, and Lauren, to run in my first ever 5k. Up until race day I had only run 1 mile straight. Those girls ROCK! They ran with me until I couldn’t run any farther (2 miles!!) and then tried to cheer me on at the finish line.
It was such a fun get away. While it was hard to get out the door (I almost canceled like 5x), once I was there it was great. We went out to a bar for drinks, dinner and some good old fashioned girl talk. I actually had several complete conversations without loosing my train of though in a puke free outfit. Good times.
The next race is Radiant System’s Sprint for Cancer on 4/20. I’m running with Jamie and we’re having "In Support of Linda" put on the shirts in honor of our colleague and my mentor Linda Lane. She’s the BEST!!
