Lucky me to have this guy ask me on a 9 mile date at 6 am! Wow, we are weird.But, you know what? I’m really thankful Anthony like to exercise — and, in the morning, just like me! If not, I think we’d have some serious issues.
But, like this article says, sometimes exercise can be a huge stumbling block for relationships when it gets in the way of the really important stuff — like holidays, spending time with kids, etc. I can’t believe the whole “spouse of a triathlete” culture. It would be extremely difficult dating someone who had to workout 3 hours a day and be in bed by 9 pm. WOW.
For Anthony and me, I think running together has been a really great part of our relationship. It was one of the first ways we got to know each other and probably one of the best ways we’ve gotten to know each other over the years. Last fall, we trained for a marathon together — including 22+ mile runs, just us two! It was a new challenge for us and we both learned a whole lot about each other. We had some really memorable runs. According to another article, couples who workout together (or separately) are more likely to inspire each other, have positive attitudes, eat healthy, and try out new routines.
Another important relationship in my life — my roommates!! Look who we ran into this morning in Rock Creek Park! Daniela and her friend Marisa.
And while I’m gushing about my loves, here’s a photo of my usuals, since I haven’t been posting about them lately…
Tonight the weirdness continues when we go to a wine bar to drink water.
