My favorite thing about Valentine’s Day might be the abundance of red and pink. Well, that and anything with tiny hearts on it. Otherwise, it’s a holiday I could do without.
Something I couldn’t do without, nor live without is the support of my husband. At first glance our little two person family seems a little one dimensional.
We’re both fitness professionals. We both work for ourselves. We both walk to the beat of our own drum.
But we’re actually quite different from one another.
No, we don’t workout together on a regular or semi-regular basis. Our refrigerator isn’t just full of kale and protein powder. And no we don’t sit around at night and make up exercises for our clients to do, despite their beliefs.
This past Sunday when Rick asked if he could join me for a run, it actually felt like a date. He had taken a few days off from running due to a cold so he had planned to run four miles then head back home to let me finish up my seven miler. When we got to the point in the park where he was suppose to head back home, he decided to run the entire seven miles with me.
He’s gifted. He’s the kind of guy that even though he’s closer to forty then thirty, he can just go out and run seven miles despite the fact that he hasn’t ran that far since college (For what it’s worth, I’m completely envious of his natural running abilities).
The thing I love about run dates, is I’m doing the thing that I consider to be “mine” with the one I love. In my book a run date is the ultimate Valentine’s Day date.
Do you go on run dates with your significant other?
Disclosure: I am a Brooks Run Happy Ambassador for which compensation is received.
For this date my husband got to pick out his own Brooks Running gear to try out. Below are his picks.
