Every Wednesday, the Deb from Deb Runs will be providing a word about which to blog. Kind of like a nice little blog prompt. Posts can be fitness or health related, but don’t have to be, so really anyone can play along. Just be sure to link up with InLinkz on Deb’s main post, and share the love by reading and commenting on other’s participant’s posts.
This week’s Word is FRIENDSHIP
Besides family, there’s nothing more important than friends. They are there when times get tough. They support your interests and keep you company. You could ask them for a favor because you know they would never refuse. You can’t imagine life without them.
I feel very fortunate to have a lot of good friends.
I am still in contact with a few friends from high school and college. It is great to connect with them and reminisce (about the good old days.) I have also made a bunch of GREAT friends as an older adult from the activities that I do…tennis, boating, quilting, mah jongg, running, etc. And I also have several from work (all 3 of my careers.) All of these people are precious to me.
still friends after all these years (45 to be exact)…wish I would see them more often
good friends from college…we spent our junior year in France together and when we get together it’s like 1974 again
Molly, whom I taught with for 20 years. We go to the track each summer…this being our our 31st year??
I taught with Eileen as well…she goes with me to NYC often and is a fellow Lez Miz fanatic
my dear friend and former French teacher, Michele
also 2 friends from my early teaching days
Cheryl was my colleague at my 2nd job- she likes boating, movies & yoga
Sherrie, from my current job, motivates me to walk more
I play mah jongg with these ladies every Friday and we do other things together, as well
my tennis friends are more than for playing tennis. We travel, eat out, knit and do many more things together.
some great boating friends
and those wonderful marina buddies who make my summer weekends the best
Judy, on the right is my closest friend. We went to college together and still get together almost weekly to chat. She is the most caring person you could meet.
I know I may have left some people out (Sorry) …. but this post is getting lengthy.
Since this is a running blog, I should mention those runners that I also consider to be my friends…
I met Judy through Facebook. We now run some races together and even weekly training runs
I met AJH in 2010 through her blog. Since then, even though she lives in VT, I think we have run at least one race a year together.
I met Mary at a race in 2010 and we have been friends ever since. Unfortunately, she moved to CA but luckily I have still gotten to see her each year.
You may have noticed that most of friends do not run. There are just a few overlaps.
MaryPat from tennis actually started me running
Natalie is a mah jongg friend who I inspired to run.
Terry is a quilting friend who is also a big distance runner
But all my friends support my running. (They may think I am nuts but don’t say so to my face LOL)
Happy Running! Do you have a lot of friends or just a few close ones? Do you friends share your love of running?
