"Nothing's better than the wind to your back, the sun in front of you,
and your friends beside you."
~ Aaron Douglas Trimble
Talk. Laugh. Listen. Repeat. Talk. Laugh. Listen. Repeat.As we got into the second hour, our conversation shifted into shorter phrases and one to two word sentences such as; "Stop looking at your watch," and "I'm dying" and "No, you're not" and "What the hell was THAT guy doing?" And, as you'd expect, by the end, things got pretty quiet. We were both really tired and we'd covered every topic we could think of. And we were both really tired. Did I mention how tired we were? But even still, the steady rhythm of our feet and our breathing was as good, if not better, than the beat of the music that I depend so heavily on when I am running alone. It was long. It was insanely hard. It was hot. And in it's own, crazy, backwards way, it was awesome. For me, running is like dancing. Dancing is fun. And I have no problem doing it by myself. But, it's a lot more fun to dance with a friend than to dance alone.
