@DrD711:  We started dating in high school and I was already in Cross Country and Track at the time, so I got him to join me 🙂 We run together sometimes, but never do races together anymore.

I so wish I did!

My fiance is amazing and cheers me on at every race (which–with 6a.m. start times and two-hour lengths of time–melts my heart). BUT, he definitely does not run them!

My ex-boyfriend wasn’t even there to cheer me on for my first half-marathon. Crossing that finish line was tooooottaaallly bittersweet. 

I’m so happy you have a dude you can run with! 😀

@DrD711:  Only some- maybe 25% of the races I do. He’s an obstacle racer, whereas I do long distance races. He doesn’t like to run with me because I talk too much while running! 🙂

@jwdesiree:  That’s very sweet! I’ve only been able to drag FI to a couple of races.

We will on our own for practice, but not for a race.  He’s WAY faster so we don’t do that.

@Kir32:  Over the years, I’ve been running less and less races, so maybe it’s just because we were just starting to date and he wanted to impress me 😉

@DrD711:  Haha, yeah, my FI gets mad that I run. Period. Congrats on your first half!! It really is a HUGE accomplishment.

@DrD711:  Congrats on your first half! I’ve done a couple and am gearing up for my first full as well. It’s so intimidating!

@DrD711: I believe it hehe. My SO plays hockey as his main form of exercise now. He doesn’t completely love running, but he still runs with me sometimes. This morning was one of those times. I like running alone though, I keep a better pace that way.

I’m super jealous of all you ladies with runner DHs/SOs! The finish line pics look like so much fun!

@DrD711:  Yes!!! He completed the Spartan trifecta this year!! I’ve only done a super, and I swear, it was 100 times harder than any marathon I’ve ever done! You must be seriously badass 🙂
