…Sadly not in the old playground sense, but in a ‘running to keep up’ sense. There is a reason I generally run on my own – I can go at my own pace (more slower than faster overall). However I have started some lunch-time running once a week at work. Usually its fine as it is a varied groups so everyone usually has someone to run at their pace. Today I went out with a couple of the guys, one of which is a proper runner and belongs to a club – right away they were running faster than me and I knew I was going to struggle to keep up…and I did. But I tried very hard because I don’t like feeling I’m keeping people back. When it did get too much of an for me they did courteously wait for me. Needless to say I was knackered after the 4.5 of rolling hills. Thankfully my other running male friend is a relative newbie to the whole running thing so I can actually run fast than him J Moral to the story – running after boys is only fun if there is something fun at the end of it for me, which in this case there wasn’t.
Boys (well, men really) worth running after: 0 – no offence to the guys with me – they are lovely people!
