You can run, but you cannot hide!

Both mothering and running, you can do on your own and in the company of others.

As a mom I love to seek out other moms. To hear how they are doing, and to know that I'm not crazy when I feel like I'm going crazy.

Running however, I prefer to do all by my self. Because running helps me find myself. And I know if I run with someone else I'll start worrying if I'm going too slow, and holding her back. Or I'll start talking, and talking and get all sidetracked and lost.

Admittedly there are times when I wish I hadn't found myself, and I feel like running far, far away from me, but hey, that's when I run the fastest!

As a mom it's important to go out and look for yourself. Because your Self is a colleague you'll never outrun.

No matter how fast you run.

Great post. I will do LOTS of solo running in the next few months as I am training for my next marathon and don't really have a group. Reading your post made me realize this might not be such a bad thing. It really gives me alone time that I don't get at home with my kids, dog, etc.

I love to run by myself, because I run for me. I don't want to compare myself to others, and lose the enjoyment. Especially since I'm pretty proud of myself that I get out there and do it.

I love walking by myself. I agree it gives you that "me" time and solitude away from the chaos of home life. Sometimes running away from yourself is good as long as you come back later :0
