Happy Birthday Paul (my Runner Dude)! 🏃🏻♂️
Before I had a boyfriend, I was perfectly happy, healthy, and content. I wasn’t looking for anyone; however, when I wished for someone, I always wished for a runner dude who would appreciate my weirdness. Not because runners are badass, or because all the fun gear, or the kickass running shoes, or the way they make something impossible seem like a piece of cake, or the friendly and supportive personality that most of them possess, and not because of the fact they love beating themselves more than they’re worried about beating others (most of the time 😉). All that is certainly a plus, but I wished for a runner dude mostly because I wanted to share the same passion! I wanted someone who would push me and make me better! I wanted someone to share the excitement of race day with. I wanted someone to reflect what went well and what to do differently next time. And maybe it’s the little girl inside, but I also wanted someone to be proud of me.💛 Running is truly magical in so many ways. I still can’t believe Paul ended up being the runner dude I had wished for. He believes in me more than I believe in myself, he pushes me to go farther and faster, he encourages me when I feel defeated, he gets just as excited about race day, and he makes the fun miles more fun and the sucky miles less sucky. I’ve loved all the minutes and miles we’ve shared together, even the tough ones. I treasure them more than words can express, and I hope we have thousands and thousands more to go!
Paul, thank you for sharing this passion with me and making all of it special. Thanks for letting me lean on you for advice and for always keeping it fun.
Happy Birthday G!!!
