Quite a while ago, my friend Susie and I decided we wanted to run a 9K together. So long ago, in fact, that we were the first two runners to register!
For the past few months we’ve been long-distance training partners, encouraging each other and holding each other accountable as our runs got longer.
This past weekend we did it!
It was a gorgeous fall day — sunny, not much wind, and about 50 degrees. And Chicago was full of fall color, a rare treat for this Texas girl. It made me miss the two falls we spent in Wisconsin exploring forests full of fall leaves (and the time when we befriended John and Susie!)
It was so fun to run and chat (chatting and laughing so much that we had to catch our breath and walk some)!
Time to find another race to run together!
