My favorite running partner is my wife Amanda. Running together gives us dedicated time away from hectic schedules and opportunities to build memories around races. It’s fun to experience mileage and PR goals with each other and celebrate together. Running is a sport that challenges you mentally and physically and can help partners grow.
Running with a partner also bring challenges. It’s important to balance activities so that one person isn’t always in second place. I may be a faster runner than Amanda, but she rules in yoga. Choosing the right partner can help keep you accountable to training goals and making running more fun. Here are 4 rules for picking a running partner.
