18 Years ago I met Jeff and he mentioned he was going for a run after work. I have always worked out and when I heard him say he was going for a run, I thought to myself, perfect – I’m going running too. I was so excited to find something in common that I could casually invite him to join me and to take up something together, you know, strategically flirting!! I was rollerblading after work at the time, but thought, hey – I can run. That would be fun!
So I tried out running alone first, and then casually invited him to join me one night after work . But by the time I asked him again, he said he hated running. What? What kind of line is that? I was totally mislead. Geez… but we did run together, maybe once, because by this time I had signed up to run a 5K in Dallas. But by the time the race came around, he was done running. But my charm still worked — we just didn’t run together. Until today.
18 years later, we went for a run together… in the drizzling rain in Holland. Before we went, he asked if I was planning to talk. Was this a pick up line?? I think I know him by now – and told him, well maybe. But of course, I want to run again with him, so I was quiet. But guess who was talking?? Hahahaha… I’m cracking myself up.
I’m so glad we went out for a run and that I invited myself. We had a great time and did something fun and athletic together, which made my day! I think he might have enjoyed it too… I think I’ll join him with his kettle bell workout tomorrow too, just don’t tell him my plans!! I’m sure it’ll be “quiet” and loads of fun!
