I have the distinct pleasure of running with an incredible group of people twice a week. Speed work on Tuesdays. And an ultra aggressive tempo that invariably disintegrates into an all out race every Thursday.
Through it all we are highly supportive of each other and have quickly developed bonds that come from pushing each other week in and week out.
The fun always comes through. Particularly when it’s time for the post-run photo. We even joke that our running is merely a pretence to get everyone out for a pic. That if we were professional models, we would just be misted down to make it look like we are glistening with sweat. But since we aren’t models, we have to earn that sweat.
Here’s today’s pic. Everyone one, every single person in this picture, with the exception of me, has qualified for Boston at least once.
I have work to do.
