I have known Michelle through the blog world for over a year know, but have really come to know her very well in the last few months via email. We have some common interests: coffee, mothering little boys, blogging, a love for the Lord, (and for Brooks shoes!) and, of course, running!
Today was a chance for us to meet in "real-life," to get to know each other a little deeper, to visit about things we never email about, and to go for a run.

Together, we drove from Junction City to Eugene and ran a section of the "EWEB Run To Stay Warm" half marathon course.
Keeping it to an easy pace, we chatted about all things under the sun.
Truly, I can say that she is a wonderful woman and a good friend I will enjoy getting to know even better.
I promised to squirt her with salted lemonade from my fuel belt if she talked too much, but she was so darned interesting I forgot all about it!
We finished our run through the fountain at EWEB (Eugene Water and Electric Board) and still had more to talk about as we headed to 5th street market to pick up her daughter (another lovely young lady).
I am so honored to have a chance to coach this friend. Here's to many more happy runs together!
