This past weekend, my husband and I ran our first 15K together in Druid Hill Park, Baltimore. For anyone who knows us, we have done nearly everything together; we really are two peas in a pod. However, for some reason or another, we had never run together before this past weekend. Not really even around our own neighborhood…weird, right?
But something magical happened while we were running our first charity run together, we bonded in a completely new way. It’s not everyday that you get to bond in a new, unique way with someone you have known since you were 4! It was the craziest thing ever; without explanation really.
Even crazier was that we were running along side one another without competing with one another (which is really annoying to both of us) and without even talking at times (which is virtually unheard of for me, I’m chatty). Sometimes we would giggle because we would bump into one another while running and say “excuse me” or “sorry”, but say nothing else for a while.
We both got into the car after the race and said (almost simultaneously), “I like running with you”. Who knew?
