This could not be truer when it comes to finding running buddies!! For the past few months I have been running with two friends Lisa and Laney...these ladies are my kind of crazy! They think nothing of waking up at an ungodly hour to meet up for a long run...even if that means we are running most of our run in the dark! Case in point was this past weekend...it was DARK at 5:30am...the kind of dark where there is no stars, no moon, no street lights. Added to the mix was a thick fog rendering our headlamps pretty much unusable. Needless to say our first 5 was noticeably quiet as we dealt with our own fears of the dark! I was ready to throw in the towel after those 5 but I was so thankful they were there and finish another 5 to end the day. The power of someone beside you to carry you through is so motivating!
A special shoutout to Jill who OWNED her ultra this past weekend even in the rain and winds....she's my kind of crazy!!!
