|Note: neither Liza nor myself are dinosaurs.|
I have learned something very important from this venture. Get a running buddy. Someone who you get to catch up with while you're running. Someone who will make you excited to exercise. Someone to push you that last mile(s). I run farther and faster when I'm running with Liza, though the last couple miles, without fail, involve me telling her I hate her and she needs to shut up.
Liza helps me in a big way. I'm tremendously grateful to her for her motivation, company, and pushing me to run faster and farther than I thought I could go.
Do you have an exercise buddy? How do they help you?
