When I go out for a run, I always feel like I'm reconnecting with a loving friend. A friend who's always there for me, even if I've been away for a while. A friend who never judges me, and is always happy to greet me.
Apart from running itself, I always feel like I'm meeting up with the friends living in my iPod. Like Brad Paisley.
He tells the greatest stories, and makes me laugh. Like the time he told his wife he had to work, but really he went out fishing and then got caught! Sometimes he makes me tear up too, like when he talks about his grandpa, who told him God always listens to your prayers, only sometimes the answer is No.
Catching up with Brad Paisley is like catching up with an old friend.
Running makes me feel rich, because I know I've got all these friends out there, just waiting for me to show up.
