An original member of the Marin BreakfastKlub Runners, Tracey, came back to the Bay Area for a visit this past weekend. She and her family moved to Dallas just a bit over two years ago and boy have we missed her!
We logged many, many miles together during the 5 years that we ran together and Tracey was always the rabbit that I tried, but failed to catch. Not that I had any rivalry with her, I just always looked up to the fluidity and the ease in which she ran and hoped to be able to keep up with her one day. She will deny that she runs with fluidity and ease, because she’s a gracious friend as well!
We did a couple of runs and enjoyed being able to chat with her again! She ran slowly so I could keep up with her (as I suffer through a nasty cold) and it felt like old times again. You realize as you get older that it’s not the number of friends you have, it’s the friendship you have that matters.
So call a good friend, tell them that you love them and Go Run!
