Our 2nd Mud Run Training class was last night. Ouch. I know for a fact that I’m going to have two friends who are very angry at me today…but they’ll at least be too sore to chase me, today. I talked more friends into going to class this week. Both of which are not fans of running. Why do people listen to me? Am I that persuasive? Am I that optomistic? What is it? Sometimes I think whether I would be able to talk ‘me‘ into something…and I’m like…no way. (that sentence will only make sense to a few people, and that’s ok) Anyway, Wed night we did a pretty hard workout and then last night was abs class, walking and then class. One of my friends actually went and played a softball game AFTER training. Good to do it on the first night, when you don’t know quite how much pain you’ll be in the next day. Anyway, they already decided that I owe them food and drinks after the Mud Run, which I am entirely prepared to do. I’m just happy to be doing this with friends. It’s so much more fun when you have other people to struggle and succeed with, plus we’re all girls and girlfriends are just good to have. It’s taken me four whole years down here, but I’ve finally gotten to a point where I have what I would consider several girlfriends that I’m really good friends with, not just acquaintances that I hang out with sometimes. And there is a difference. Real friends will let you talk them into things that they really don’t want to do….like running! =) Anyhow. I hurt today, but it’s all worth it. The pool sounds nice. Not as nice as Jamaica…but it’ll do.
