Since Scottie has signed up for the Saint George Marathon, he has been running his little guts out! Since I like to run I thought it would be fun to train together.... until he starts geting into the higher digits that is. I was a little worried that maybe I should have stayed solo, but I think I surprised myself! Lately Scottie and I have been running up to the temple and back which is five miles from our house. I usually just go for three and call it quits. Tonight we ran up to the high school and back which is a grand total of 8 1/2 miles!!! As for me, well I have really enjoyed running with my sweetheart for a few good reasons like...
-I get to spend more time with my man
-Scottie is my personal cheerleader. He is constantly cheering me on when I feel like walking instead of running
-Men work out harder, therefore....I work out harder.
-We talk about our day, buying a house, work, funny stories and before you know it we've gone a mile
-I get to run through the sprinklers (yay!)
-It makes me appreciate my man more because I KNOW he can run a lot faster and a lot further but he sticks with me instead of leaving me in the dust
-It feels really good when I'm done
-It's good for the heart....in more than one way ;-)
Thanks babe for pushing me!! Love you!
