Anyway, got another 3 miler in this evening, and it was a nice smooth run, but I didn't bring the Garmin...because I was running with Jer! Yes, you read that right. Jerry and I were running together.
So, it's official. I have outed him as a runner. He's been running since early summer, but only on a supplementary basis. See, he started this whole exercise and eating healthy business last May, and he's been really successful at (he's lost about 40 lbs!), and he started running a few days a week to supplement the monotony of the gym. Now, I've basically twisted his nipples until he agreed to run the Turkey Trot 5K with me on Thanksgiving morning and he's committed to a little extra running to get ready for the race.
We're gonna run the race together (that was his one demand -- I could not "leave him in the dust"), and I'm looking forward to running a race together! I hope he likes it. He has been reluctant about committing to it, and has asserted that it by no means will he do other races, but I secretly think that it will give him the "running bug." We'll see. I can't force him to like running (he currently states that he hates it, but likes that it's such an efficient calorie burner), and I can only twist his nipples so much. Because, eventually? He twists back.
