Gutting it out.

Last year when I started running with the Couch to 5K/10K apps, I mostly trained on my own. 

When I joined the women's running group that I'm a part of up here, my running really started to come together. I loved (and still love!) the advice my running coach gives me. It was and still is great to be around a great group of women when doing the long training runs. 

When I started training for my first half, I also gained a really good running buddy during the week. 

Well my running buddy is moving and pretty soon, I'm going to have to find a whole new running group. 

For some reason, this seems more of a rite of passage to me than running my races does. It was like running in the winter this past year. I just wanted to be able to say I could do it. 

I want to be able to say I can run with or without somebody. Accountability is great. And if I find another running buddy in Arkansas, I'll be thrilled, but this fall, I want to know if I can gut out the training (minus my long runs) on my own. 

Anyways, that's all I wanted to say. Wanted to make sure it was documented for you know, accountability reasons. 

Happy Saturday!

You absolutely can! I wish I had a training group around here to run with. The people I know that run are way faster than me, so that doesn't work. I feel like a turtle compared to them!
