This has it's benefits. My speed is increasing. It's never easy, and like I mentioned, I've come to accept that there will not be a run with her that doesn't challenge me and keep me out of breath. But I'm okay with that. She doesn't run as often as I do so I take my easy runs when I am solo. Or with Lola (who can't go T's fast pace nor our long distances, so she hasn't been getting as much running in).
This week, running with Torie, I had my fastest ever time - by quite a bit - on a loop that I have been doing for 10+ years. That sure felt awesome. I was giddy all day.
It even got me to thinking of what else might be possible...
Chasing Torie is a good thing.
