The Note, the Thought, the Time...

99.9% of my runs are done alone bc of several reasons...but mostly because I love my alone time in nature to breathe, find my own rhythm, and let my mind wander to really fun places.


Over break, an old friend was in town and I asked her to go for a run because our visiting time would be short. We had a wonderful chat and put another building block into our friendship.


Today, I received a heartfelt card from her detailing her enjoyment of the run and noting every conversation we had and thanking me for my part in it. Geez...A hand written ‘thank you’ note after a friendship building run....

 


It was the note, the thought, and the time she took that was so touching. Was also a good eye opener that although solo runs bring grounding in ways that are hard to describe, running with friends open up conversation and a vulnerability that do a body and a friendship good!


Take away: Don’t always run with others to be pushed...run to connect!! And another lesson is that I need to write hand written notes more often. Truly made my day.


Have fun, go run!
