This week I was able to run with Ward three times! Monday night was an unexpected run. I had already gotten in a speedy 5 miles just after school and was tired already as it was. But when Ward came home and suggested I run with him, it took me all of two seconds to say "okay". It was dark and spooky on my road, but I felt completely safe with Ward.
Then Wednesday I had planned on running 8 miles. When I was talking to Ward about it, he suggested I run 4 after school and then run 4 later on with he and Wade. Awesome! It meant another night run, but I loved it. We ran on the rail trail, something I've never done at night. It gets really dark down there.
Then I had the chance to run with him again today! Unfortunately we are having my least favorite running weather ever. Freezing rain. I can handle rain, and I can hand sub zero temps, but I strongly dislike freezing rain. Apparently Ward dislikes it as well, because I didn't have to beg him at all to run with me on the treadmill at the gym. I only had to ask once and he was on board. The plus side is that I got to run my own pace and got to talk to him, while he ran at his freaking fast pace beside me.
I am beyond excited to have been able to run with Ward the three times (and Wade the 1 time) this past week. While I do enjoy my girl time, it was super nice to have some husband and brother-in-law time as well.
