One thing I have noticed is that when I take Elsie and/or Ben out with me on my runs people tend to be a lot more friendly and open. It's not that there is any rudeness when I run solo but I do tend to get more subdued good morning greetings and just a wee bit of wariness whereas when the dogs are with me nearly all the famed British reserve almost disappears.
Today I had to force myself out the door to run and then had to cut it short because I ate entirely too late last night but at least I managed to get a handful of miles in. It's definitely time to start thinking about meeting up with some of the local running clubs so that I can find someone to run with.
If I only knew how many miles!
