Years ago, a few friends and I would run together. It was fun, but as years went by, became difficult to continue.
My best workout pal was my great dane Merlin. Everyday like clockwork he and I would run 2 miles. He kept a steady pace, and I felt such joy with him by my side.
Workout pals can be great. My daughter is training for a biathlon with a friend. Keeps her focused and motivated.
Be the kind of woman that when your feet hit the floor each morning the devil says, "Oh crap, she's up!".
