|Me and Jodi before a track workout, 2010|
My sister Jodi is my running buddy (to put it in the simplest of terms). We have a connection that runs deep, and is only made stronger when we are out on the trails and roads running or racing together. Or apart. The connection is always there, no matter what. Usually very few words are exchanged between the two of us when we are running. After a bit of silence one of us might go to say something only to be interrupted by the other laughing and smiling because she was about to say the same exact thing. When we’re not running though and are just in the midst of our daily lives, we talk a few times a day and chatter non stop with a natural ease and comfortable openness that is completely uncensored.

Can you relate to this, too? Do you have running buddies who you connect with on that level?
