Like a lot of us I have some great friends.
I have friends from College, some from my Canada days, friends in Essex and new friends here in Devon. Then I have my blogging friends. Some I have met, eaten with, ran with, parkrun ran with, some have even had a sleep over. Some I have not met, my virtual friends. I know I can call them friends although we have yet to meet, because the definition of a friend is ‘a person with whom one has a bond of mutual affection’. I think I can be sure that if I ever make it to Tasmania I have a running partner, the same I hope could be said in America (depending where I end up its a big place!) with some sewing chat thrown in. Who knew this blogging lark would bring such friendships? Well not me for sure.
Recently I have made a new virtual friend- ceejaykay, not only do we have running in common but both have an underactive thyroid and a love of taking photographs. CJ blogged about her creation of bracelets for runners. Having checked her Etsy shop out and her lovely designs, I knew I had to have one (so clever). However before I got a chance to place an order, there came the offer of a gift from the creator herself. I insisted on purchasing them as intended, Madam I knew would love one (we are still arguing about this!). Today, two cute little boxes arrived
with a great running quote on the top ‘That’s the thing about running; your greatest runs are rarely measured by racing success, they are moments in time when running allows you to see how wonderful your life is’. So true.
Obvious choice of choc today………..
