When I started running, specifically longer distances, I couldn't find anyone to join me. I'm not the most out going person in the world so I was loathe to join in on the local running club's weekend runs. I've logged many miles by myself and began to believe I enjoyed hitting the road all by my lonesome.

We usually run together once a week and use that time to vent, laugh, and talk about running. I've really started to look forward to these runs; to share what I love about running, and just getting to know her better.
If your running life is getting a little stale, lacking some sparkle, or just becoming too routine - go find someone to run with. It will inject your runs with some new life and give you an opportunity to share what you love.
