When for a jog!

Today a friend asked me if I wanted to go for a run today.

I went and here’s the kicker.

My friends tell their husbands they are going out for a run.

They get dressed in their gym gear.

They then leave the house.

They meet in a car park.

They then do NO running.

NONE at all!!

We chatted and walked along the sea front.

We talked and giggled and looked at hot guys – who by the way where actually running.

I suggested at one point that we actually did some running.

After a few mumbles we all started to jog.

Something clicked.

It felt good.

It felt really good.

Everything melted away.

Everything disappeared.

I feel I should say at this point that since dipstick left I’ve lost 35 pounds.

Running before wasn’t easy.

This though was magic.

After running for a while I stopped and turned around.

The girls had stopped a while ago.

I however wanted to carry on, I didn’t because I enjoyed the chats.

So I have decided I’m going to go ‘running’ with the girls every week and then actually go jogging by myself too.

  1. That is wonderful. Exercise, specifically running, is reportedly one of the best treatments for depression. Today I was without a car and had to go for a long brisk walk to get home. It helped. I’m so happy to read this post.
