"The friendships I have through running keep me coming back for more. We are all busy women. A lot of us have small children, and children make for countless unfinished thoughts and conversations. When we run, no one is distracted or interrupted. Phones (and people) do not ring or ding or summon us back to our real lives. This is bliss. Running cuts away the crap, and you can really connect. You are not putting on your best face or best behavior. You are just out there running together. The talk that comes during a long run is real and genuine. I have learned intimate details about my friends’ lives that would never come up in a passing chat. We get real."
