I’ve written before about my wonderful running group, Moms RUN this Town – but I’m doing a special shout out to my local MRTT Chapter. These women get me out and push me to run stronger every time. And since most of them are moms – they don’t put up with complaining or whining or any other BS.
Case in point, yesterday I was supposed to go out for a run, however:
Excuse #1: forecast called for rain. The sky was cloudy and it had been raining on and off all morning. But my running buddy (RB), Michele, sent me texts showing where we were running was rain free for a couple of hours.
Excuse #2: my kids started to whine about the possibility of rain, that they were hungry, that they wanted to bring a different helmet, that they wanted their bike and not the scooter, that they were worried about slipping if the ground was wet…you get the picture, right? But my RB said to just come up, if it rains, we’ll have lunch instead!
Excuse #3: on the way to the run, I needed to stop for a kid potty break, which would make us 15 min late for our meet up. But my RB said, no worries, I’ll wait for you!
(Sigh) All my attempts for getting out of the run were thwarted!
And I am so glad!!
We had a great run with minimal whining (adults and kids) and no rain. We even did hill repeats to break up our usual routine.
If I was running by myself…well, let’s just say this post would NOT have been about running!
So here’s to all the beautiful women who make up MRTT! LOVE my BAMR RBs!!
