If someone were to ask me who (past or present) I would most like to run a race with, I wouldn't even hesitate for a second before answering. A lot of people would get all philosophical and say "the Pope" or "Nelson Mandela" or "Oprah", but not me. Nope. My dream racing partner lives a lot closer to home: Will (my husband)! Can it get any better than pursuing one of your passions with the love of your life?! I think not.

Will has been toying with the idea of using running as supplementary training for his cycling for a while now (with zero nudging from my side, promise), but somehow it has always ended up getting lost in the intensity of final cycling goal race preparations. But not this year: He started running during the off season and kept at it and today, three months later, he completed his first non-stop 5 k run since varsity days!! Gooooooo Will!

Sadly I'm unable to run a 5 k race with him right now (I'm 27 weeks pregnant today!), but keep an eye out for the two of us (and perhaps the kids in a jogger?) early next year - I absolutely can't wait!
Who's your dream racing/running partner?
