I had the best long run on Saturday–perfect weather, strong legs, and wonderful running partners.
I’ve been running with most of these girls for several years now. I appreciate them for so many reasons, but one fabulous reason is that this is a group within which we never have drama. There’s never any talking behind backs, no passive aggressive behavior, no snarky comments, no nothing. And as a female–you know where I’m coming from girls–this is rare indeed.
I can’t say that I have much drama in my life; I believe that as adults that’s the way it should be. But it happens on occasion in groups other than my running friends. Really, it gets old.
I’m not sure why this particular group avoids the nonsense, but I have my theories. One is that an activity like running gives you self-esteem that you might not have otherwise. Self-esteem translates into better behavior all around. It’s those without it that are mostly likely to stir the pot, in my opinion.
Whatever the reason, I love that I have a group of friends where I can always feel comfortable and supported. I’m a lucky lady.
Don’t forget my POM Wonderful giveaway here. It ends tomorrow!
