This week, the best run was the 4 miler but NOT because it was short, but because I did the run Saturday morning and had some pretty awesome company for it. Lindsey was in town and agreed to join me for a run and then there were bagels and there was talk of food, and it was delightful.
I’m seriously considering offering to fly her down to DC regularly so that I don’t have to run outdoors alone anymore.
It was a good thing that run happened on Saturday because that basically makes all the other runs look boring and stupid and meaningless. I will say, I finished my third week actually following a training plan and I’m not sure how much longer I’ll be able to do this before I completely lose interest in it and start thinking, “fuck it, I’m doing my own thing” and accidentally acting like I know better than Google. No one knows better than Google. NO ONE. It’s impossible.
