Oooh boy. I am home a few short minutes from a run with Stephanie. Although we did not do our "usual" run ie: I did not torture Stephanie with the route we run ALL THE TIME; it was a fabulous run nonetheless. As it turns out, it is probably better that we ran on neutral ground with little familiarity. That would have been a lot harder.
We have had the best runs together, and some not so great runs. The "hobble gobble" goes down as an epic run. Steph and I decided to run Thanksgiving morning after working night shift. Now, some of you may think running is wacky, and night shift wackier, and the combo inconceivable. Hopefully most of you will see the complete clarity of it all. Anyway, midway of our run we saw a chicken meandering around the lawn of a very beautiful home. That struck us as very hilarious and thought that of all things, the chicken was having the best day of everyone! It was all crazy from then on. There was also the runs in the extreme weather-stepping into near waist deep puddles along Knott street (so we decided to not run Knott), late evenings, wind, sun, even snow and ice. I would run in any condition to run with Stephanie. Today was one of those days that I did not want the run to end. Usually I get to the point of being tired, hot, thirsty, etc. but today I could have run all day just to be running with Stephanie.
