As I was running at my neighborhood park about 2 days ago I thought about a few things. First of all, I will say that I was not running because someone was chasing me. I was running for several reasons leisure, exercise, to clear my thoughts, for relaxation. You see, I love running (always did). Based on my body habitus one would expect me to be able to run miles, but that's not the case (thanks to a big nuisance I call asthma). I've always ran solo but recently I've thought about how nice it would be to have a running partner. My husband is out of the question because he hates running. Then this ad came to my mind.

By the way, I'm an Aries
I saw a potential running buddy at the park. She was probably 15-20 years older than me. She appeared athletic and I thought she would be a great candidate. But...she blew me out of the water. Completely left me in the dust. So much for that.
Actually I'm not so sure I want/need a running partner. I guess it's more just someone to tell me to take that first step--to tell me to get some shorts on then drag me out of the house. More like a daily running accountability partner.
