Gary is back! I was so happy to see him that I gave him a big hug. Despite being seriously sick for well over a week, he didn’t complain, kept smiling and showed an eagerness to get back into the training. His strength and courage impressed me. I feel lucky to train with such a positive person. Anyway, David, our trainer, had separate training regimes planned for us, mine involved more running while Gary’s involved more walking. To be honest though, I didn’t really go much faster than Gary, every time I turned around to check on my friend, I could always see him in the distance! We each pushed ourselves appropriately but without causing pain. I can’t believe it but I ran for 18 minutes!! Hasn’t happened in 25 years. Wonders never cease!
