Husband and Wife Running
I think running with your spouse is a great activity to share. We enjoy quality time together and good health. When we ran our first race my husband started with me and then he took off. I had never run before let alone run 3 miles. Actually I was fine with him taking off. I needed to figure out if I could really do this or if after 19 years together was I still so in love with my husband that I would agree to do things that I would never do. You know we have all done it?
Example:Guy you are trying to impress: "Do you like Nascar Racing?"
You: "Hell Yes."
Guy: "Great. I thought this weekend we would go to the speedway and camp out in the bed of my truck overnight so we can start drinking beer at 7 AM with all my buddies."
You: "Did you read my diary? This is exactly my entry under 'Romantic Dream Date'"
If you knew me before I started running you can clearly see a similar pattern, but maybe a little less starry eyed.
Husband (guy who should already be impressed that I clean his house, cook his meals, and do his laundry): "You know what I really want for my birthday?"
Me: "Did you take the garbage out, they come tomorrow?"
Husband: "For my birthday, I want you to do a 5K with me."
Me: "A 5 what"
Husband: "5K Race, you know run."
Me: "Why? Is someone going to be chasing me on your birthday? "
Husband: "I think it would be fun. Something we could do together?"
Me: "What the running or the ride in the ambulance?"
Husband: "Just try it for my birthday."
Me: "I couldn't just get you a car?"
Husband: "I will run with you"
Me: "Okay if you run with me."
See story above he did not run with me! Also I did not end up in an ambulance and I did learn to love running even when I am not being chased. Exercise with your loved one; it will make both your bodies and your relationship stronger!!
