A Work Friend Returns...

Three years ago, I signed up for Team in Training and, at first, only really knew a couple of people on the team.  That changed quickly as the weeks flew by and I came to consider some of the people to be my closest friends ever.  Funny how that works.   Katie, was on my team and while we didn't get to run together often, I still enjoyed running with her when I did.  

Fast forward a couple of years and we both end up working for the same company - different departments but same location.   But she was pregnant and I had yet to start my lunch time runs. She soon went on mat leave and had a beautiful baby girlie.  Then, comes the Corporate Challenge 10k and she decided to run it so we ran together and had a great time.

And I started to really look forward to when she'd be back at work again.

Guess what?  This is the week!  and I am so happy I got to run with her at lunch today!
I warned her the risk of running with me meant
there was a good chance of showing up on my blog
We ran the Southwood loop - 4k continuous at a nice and easy pace - and just chatted away the miles.   We didn't get rained on, though the sky was sure threatening.   Instead, it was just muggy and humid.  I was boiling hot by the time we finished so was happy she suggested stretching outside after.

Looking so forward to more of these :)
