Andrew and I have started running together on Saturday mornings. It’s been great – we made eight miles today. The runs don’t seem so long and tiring because the conversation is so stimulating, and covers the gamut of subjects from history (especially war history) to current events, politics, poverty, etc.
Running with smart people (I’m referring to him, not me). I highly recommend it.
Update – I’m also getting used to my other Saturday tradition after these long runs: coming home and eating everything in sight, then crashing in bed as my legs and body realize that they’ve had all the energy sucked out of them.
