Holidays do provide a welcome interlude and yes the warm temperature of foreign climes is enjoyable, but there is something reassuring about being back home and reverting to the everyday routine. For me that meant meeting up with my usual Sunday am running partner at Roe Valley Country Park today. Coincidentally we came across one of my former running companions, one of his sisters and her husband. Famiy life has meant that he has had to ease back from training in recent years. We joined them for our warm up. It seemed so natural that we were back running side by side and reminiscing about races of yore and our long standing running friends and acquaintances.
I yearn for life to stay the same, but age, responsibility and events provide hurdles which can't always be cleared.
