This week I found and ran with a new running friend. And it was awesome. Running with someone is so much more fun and a bit easier than tackling tough workouts by yourself. If you have not run with other people before I would recommend it. Join a training group, go to your local running store to run with other runners in the area, talk to that runner you see run by everyday. You will be glad you did if you can find someone you can train with.
