Wednesday, June 9 marked Lisa’s very last run in Birmingham, Alabama. For me, I have three weeks of hot, sweaty, muggy runs ahead of me. Then, I’ll just have the hot and sweaty runs, but believe me, I’ll take anything without the muggy! We went along our favorite trail starting at the “soccer fields” as we like to say. As we stretched, we were caught up in watching adolescent (immature) boys attempting to beat up their friend. We thought we’d have to call the police at one point when the boy was thrown over the fence – but he was fine.
We set out with my Garmin and a mission of running a 5-miler, but only ended up with a 4.25-miler – and heat radiating off of us! So humid! Lisa and I were the sweatiest we’ve ever been (evidence: picture above). But, it was the perfect farewell for Lisa! Haha. 🙂 She’ll soon be running through the beautiful, busy Central Park (don’t worry – I’ll be there some day!). I’ll definitely miss my running partner! She definitely pushes me and although she has the fluidity of a gazelle (even Marianne will admit this Lisa!), our pace is always about the same. I’ll miss you lady, but good luck in the Big Apple!! You’ll do great!! Thanks for all the talks/venting sessions we had while running!
P.s. I’m looking for a runnography partner in Arizona coming in 3 weeks!! Yup – moving back!! 🙂 So, any takers?
