Tortoise and the hare?

The Tortoise and the Hare
The Tortoise and the Hare

Some people are just so annoying!  Actually one person specifically – my husband!

 

When we first met he ran quite a bit but lately has not done much –none since July to be precise!  I have been trying to get him to go running with me but he was not having it.  

 

In the meantime I have been training quite a bit (understatement).  Both my times and distances have improved dramatically.  So when hubby said he wanted to go for a run yesterday I was both extremely happy and filled with a bit of trepidation.  Happy he was going to run, but a bit nervous about whipping his ass! 

 

I should not have worried – why is it that some people can just run!!!  It is so unfair.  Here I am training my butt off and he goes for one run in 8 months and is out there way ahead?  He left me way behind, cursing him.  Well cursing him when I get a breath in, between all the puffing.
