The BEST thing about running...

Is probably the social aspect of it all. I've made some great friends through training for runs both this year and last, and met some interesting people who I probably never would have encountered if it had not been for such a hard activity that breaks you down in spots you never knew you had before! At Saturday's friendship run, just before the Toronto Half Marathon yesterday, I met a woman who had been training for the full a few weeks ago but had to miss it due to a family crisis. We were chatting through the 3km run and she told me she worked for a new health magazine put out by Reader's Digest. BUH? So what do I do? Run out and buy it, of course! It's called Best Health Magazine. It's an over-sized publication geared toward women. The magazine has four editorial pillars; Look Great, Get Healthy, Eat Well and Embrace Life. Although it's still a relatively new mag, launching earlier this year, I found it to be pretty diverse and informative even though it seems to be aimed at an age range slightly above mine. It doesn't hurt to check it out...unlike half marathons where the pain lingers for days. Still trying to figure out what possessed me to wear heels today. Sigh.
