Half Marathon Training
Thanks for the guest post by Donn Schroeder
I am training for a half marathon, and have met so many cool people in my training group. It has been a really great activity for me because I just moved here and I really needed to make friends. I’m also starting to get really into running, which has helped me de-stress and lose some of the extra pounds I have been carrying around. My running partner is a very interesting woman who is an engineer for an energy company in town. She is a little older than me, but very nice to talk to, and a good connection to have. She knows a lot of people around town, and is always willing to help when I need her. She is always talking about setting me up with some of the young engineers she works with, but I am scared to go on a blind date. I’ve never been on one before, and I have this image in my head of it going terribly. I know I should get over my fear and take her up on the offer, but it might take me some time. I wish I would just meet another runner in the group that I like so things wouldn’t be so awkward!
