Cousins who RUN together, have FUN together!!!

My sweet little niece, Addison turned 1 on Tuesday, March 9th. We are celebrating this Saturday which means my cousin Jenny got to come to town from the East Coast to celebrate Miss Addie’s 1st birthday. Jenny ran the Capital City half marathon a couple years ago so we now talk about running whenever we get together, which is never enough. I realized she was in town early and thought it would be wonderful to get together to do a run together while she was here. I wasn’t sure if she had brought her running gear but figured a quick text would get things going. Was thrilled when she texted back that she had brought them with the intentions of running with me! SWEET! I was so excited because we had so much to get caught up on. I couldn’t wait. Got in my gear and waited for Jenny. When Jenny arrived we go a couple photos…You always have to document the journey…Right….Right! We were going to do my basic 4 miler route. She is training for a 10k with her hubby so it was a perfect distance for her. It was fun to catch up and hear about her job, her marriage (she got married 1-1/2 ago), travels…they have gone on some amazing trip the last year and the crazy snow storm they had. I saw a few of my friends running…what…that never happens. Maybe because it was a different time than my usual running time? I was excited to find out that Jenny reads my blog so we talked about that and she was interested in seeing NICE hill in person which I was more than happy to take her on a real life, tour of hills..by car of course! 4 miles was over before we knew it and I so wished she lived here so this could be a regular thing for us. At least we can look forward to runs when she comes home. We did go on that tour of hills which was fun. Took some more photos’…so fun. Love my cousin and cherished our fun run together. Can’t wait to do it again!

"They're cousins,
Identical cousins and you'll find,
They laugh alike, they walk alike,
At times they even talk alike..."

You guys are too cute in your Bondi Bands. I love them, too, and just ordered 5 more last night!

Love that you used a run to catch up. That's the best!
