But, as one who lacks automotive repair skills, when I have to fork out $600 for car repairs, like I did yesterday, it makes me wish that everything was in walking distance. I know that is not realistic, although I have heard of people turning to biking/running to and from work. Not sure I could do that. Just not practical for my situation. For those that can do it, I think it's great, and I am jealous. If I lived closer to work I might actually consider it. But I don't.
I ran 6 miles with my friend Adam yesterday. It was a good run, at a nice easy pace, except that it was cold and my mustache/beard ended up with frost/ice in it. The first half was into the wind and cold. This was really my first time running with somebody. It was pretty fun, we talked the whole way. He is training for the OKC marathon in April, and I am thinking about joining him for the Half. Not sure I want to bite off doing a full just yet. Hopefully we'll get to do a few more runs together since we live so close to one another.
