It's my sweetie! And he let me kick his butt for 1.2 miles in (wah, wah) about 13 minutes yesterday. I kept trying to get him to speed up, all to no avail of course, but at least he ran the whole way.
Half marathon training starting this week, so I'm trying to convince him to come with me for at least some of the shorter runs. Yesterday was a little too short, but it'll take him a little while to build endurance and speed. I'll enjoy him being behind me for a while. I know it's only a matter of time before he can go farther and faster than me.
Now, I'm trying to focus. What kind of comfortable-for-13.1-miles outfit can I think up to wear for the Shamrock'n Half in March? Definitely nothing too annoying. No necklaces. Maybe some fun socks and a decked out shirt? Hair bling perhaps?
