I helped someone go for their first run!

So my brother-in-law Michael Reiter has this best friend David who lives in New York and I guess David has hit the treadmill a few times. He flew out to visit Michael for the holidays just like Shelley and I did and Michael was determined to get this guy outside for a run.

It worked.

We ran about one mile.

Since I had not charged my GPS after the last couple of days, no sooner did we leave the house then I got the low battery warning and then boom, white screen. White means no dice by the way. Oh well.

It was super cool to be out here with this guy that has NEVER run outside. It was an eye-opener about where some people are in terms of running (or cycling or fitness in general for that matter); that is something I forget all too often. Not ideal if are trying to minimize the asshole quotient. At times I was able to keep up by walking. But it was all good, David felt pretty stoked - and pretty sore - after we finished. The next day he opted out of running. Oops. I hope he can keep this up.
