Travelling with other runners is awesome (Read 98 times)

    I met up with a few old teammates for the last few days and I've come to the realization that travelling with other runners is pretty sweet because:

    -every evening ends with a discussion about when and where to do the next day's run.

    -core o'clock.

    -your idea of an hour on the trails to help cure a hangover isn't immediately shot down

     

    Do you guys ever travel with other runners? Do you end up training on the vacation?

    In the words of my late-coach : Just hang in there, relax... and at the end of a race anyone you see.....just pass them

      I have not traveled with any but I enjoy the rapid fire discussion when in the company of others who run.

       

      I mean, you literally will cover fifty topics about running in five minutes!

        DW's cousin is pretty obsessed about her running and we've taken several vacations as a group.  It's always easier to carve out time for running when more than one person is pushing the issue.  The last time we vacationed together, I ran 52 miles that week.  DW doesn't mind though if I want to run when it's just the two of us travelling.  Problem is, given the nature of our trips I am usually too damn exhausted at the end of each day to want to run.

          Aww.. sounds wonderful, Adam! It's never happened to me to travel with other runners, but I would love doing it! In Boston, I'll be meeting with some friends from Montreal also running and I'm looking forward to it. Are you doing the Paris marathon this coming weekend?

            Heh, pretty sure me and Oski's DH drive the wives nuts with the running talk whenever we get together.  Smile  I don't have any proof of this, but I suspect the female eye rolling abounds.

              LRB - It was also the first time I'd run with another person in months... so I think I may have talked their ears off :P. We actually didn't talk to much about running itself.

              Baboon - That's good your wife doesn't mind. I often find that I'm too tired at the end of the day, or something like "let's take a walk down by the river/get a bottle of wine" just sounds a hell of a lot better than running a few miles.

              happylily - It was last weekend... now I've got no real running plans other than run a lot of miles and get fit.

                        You both crack me up, actually.   It's like clockwork... we're sitting at the table for 5 minutes and blammo!  We're talking running.  Big grin
