Running for two
January 31, 2010
Does running as a couple mirror your relationship? I certainly am the chatterbox in my marriage, and I know that dazed look very well. I've always felt it would be great to go out running with my husband, but now I'm not so sure. We have this undercurrent of competition going on, and I fear running might bring it to the surface. And not in a good way!
Already my husband, who doesn't run, is bragging he ran all the way to the train station in only fifteen minutes, knowing full well that, after ten years that's what it takes me too! And to rub it in, he adds: 'In my Birkenstocks, you know!'
'Yes dear,' I say, gritting my teeth, 'I know'.
So I think I'll stick to running by myself!
That way I can chat to me, and I'm a great listener!
