Give and you shall receive

At 6:00am this morning, I walked into a local breakfast spot to meet a good friend for a bagel.  Running in front of the entrance were two young women, obviously out for a training run.

"How many miles you going this morning?"  I asked.  The smiled "Four solid miles!"  They seemed pleased someone knew what to ask.  

This evening, I went out to get in the mid-week 10 mile run Hal Higdon said I needed.  Just past mid-way, near the Purdue campus, a young couple was walking along the same path.  "How many miles you done this evening?" one of them asked.  I smiled and responded warmly "Six so far!" 

Nice bookends of running encouragement today. 

Persevere.  And ask runner just how far she's going.
