My husband doesn't run. In fact, he has informed me on many occassions that the only possibilty that would prompt him to run would be if something was chasing him, and he has expressed his confidence that if a rabid dog or brain-hungry zombie were after him, he would manage to out-run them. Or, at least give it his best effort.
Reading other bloggers posts about running with their spouse or significant others, sometimes makes me jealous: I have to bribe my husband to go for a walk after dinner, and I can't ever picture him going on a run with me. Yet, most of the time, it doesn't bother me that he and I don't share this activity, and in many ways, I enjoy running alone, and have never sought out a running partner. But I thought I'd like to understand how others feel about the significant other running relationship, so what do you think?
A. It's best when your significant other is also a runner and you can run together while training and for races.
B. It's nice that you both share a love for the sport, but it's best when you don't run together.
C. You don't care if your significant other runs; you just enjoy the support they provide.
D. Being single is the only way to focus on adequately training and racing; friends provide the support a romantic relationship would create.
Or, E: Whatever other way you might be able to categorize your relationship(s) and how it affects your running.
Let me know. I look forward to what everyone thinks.
