Hi! How are you? Me, I’m great. Can’t believe CIM is less than a month away 😱
I’ve been thinking about how lucky I am to have so many great friends I’ve met through running and decided they deserve a shout out.
I am embarrassed to admit it but I have a hard time making friends. I’m more introverted and as a result like activities I do alone like reading and I mostly always run by myself. Outside of the theater I don’t have big events I meet new people at, however I learned this year that the running community has more than accepted me into their tribe and I’ve made some of the best friends in the world.
I set a NY resolution to give more compliments so here it is. Here are shout outs to some of my best running friends!
Thanks to friends who will stick by me for four hour long runs that would have taken them way less time than it took me to do.
To running groups and ambassador teams that are always willing to take a group photo with me!
To friends who will always light up my day by stopping me to say hi when seeing me at races and runs!
To friends who will spend the mornings at race expos and carb loading brunch with me!
(To the best running friends in the world)
To friends who will volunteer with me so we can cheer other friends on!
To new friends who will cheer you on and wait for you to cross the finish line of your first trail half, even if you finished nearly two hours after them.
To your craziest running friends who make you cry laughing.
To your running friends who mentor you and make you feel like a strong runner
To the running friends you meet online who become your real, in person friends!
To the running friends who coach you and push you beyond your limits.
To the running friends who bring lots of joy to your days even if you’ve only spent a few together in person
To running friends who inspire you!
And to the very best friend and running friend of all who supports, cheers and brings burgers and fries to the marathon finish line.
Thanks everyone for being my best running friends! You all mean the world to me!
Tag your best running friends or text them to decide when your next meet up for 5k and a donut is!
Cheers best running friends!
