I love living in different areas. In the past 10 years I have lived in....
|Upstate New York (Thanks Dad for the pic)|
|Pennsylvania (my first college-Cedar Crest College)|
|Northern Arizona (nearby ruins)|
|Western New York (Right down the road from Buffalo State)|
|SouthernArizona (hiking in Tucson)|
|Washington State (Vashon Island)|
|And now Maryland|
As I have previously expressed, finding a running partner in this area has been hard for me. But I run on a trail and always see runners out. Today when I was running I saw another woman running and walking and decided at 2.5 miles I would stop and talk to her. So what was supposed to be 3 miles of running quickly turned into 5.5 miles of chatting. I am looking forward to running into her (pun fully intended) on the trail again. Maybe we can be running buddies someday :)
Today's run was 2.5 miles and then walking and talking for another 2.2 miles and then I ran back home when my new friend went on her own way for another 0.8 miles....for a grand total of 5.5 miles. It felt cooler tonight and a little less humid cause it rained all day today so it was the perfect night to spend sometime with a new friend. And despite it being cooler I was a hot schweaty mess when I got home.
My "long" run on Saturday is 4 miles. But compared to today's 5.5 miles I am wondering if I should just do 5 miles again like last week. We will see how I feel on Saturday I guess.
Where have you lived?
Do you find making friends easy or hard?
What was your run like?
Any long runs planned for this weekend?
