This was the first time I've gone running with somebody else. It's also the first time I've on roads and not a track or a treadmill. We only went for a short run, 2 miles, because my colleague had to get back for a first aid training class. I have decided that I enjoy running a lot more with someone then by myself, she was very nice a kept a slow pace since I'm still fairly new to running any length of distance. Running out in the county and not on a track or a treadmill was also awesome, I loved the feeling of being outside somewhere and not confined to a track or a room. I'm definitely getting into this whole running thing.
We will try and run together every Wednesday so long as the weather doesn't get to cold or nasty. If I ever get in enough training, she already said she'd run a half-marathon with me. She has run several. It is so nice to run with someone who has had a lot of running experience, but is still willing to take a newbie under their wing. Yeah for wonderful people in the world. My hope is that everyone who is new to running has someone like this to help them get started.
The first 5k of the season up here in Montana is in March I believe, I've agreed to run a 5k with another friend of mine sometime this spring or early summer, but then I want to see if I can train up to a 10k before the summers over. Two good initial running goals I think. I never thought I'd enjoy running as much as I am. I can't wait for spring!
