As much as I love running, I find it's exponentially better in the company of friends.
Whenever I'm feeling unmotivated or bored with my running, all I need to rekindle that fire is a few miles on trail with my girls.
Having raced twice recently, I was in the mood for a more leisurely jaunt through the woods.
Luckily, I was able to talk Kate and Katie into adopting the same "race strategy."
There were a few moments when I felt the urge to pick up the pace, but I tucked it away and settled back into our contented rhythm.
Today was for socializing with friends, enjoying every moment, reveling in the privilege of running in this beautiful setting.
When it was over, I felt so jazzed I wanted to go out for another loop.
Sometimes, it's truly the simplest things in life that make it joyful. I can't wait til my next run with friends!
