That is how long I have been with DH and for the first time ever, yesterday, we went running together!!!!<br><br>
Now some of you may remember all the issues we were having in the beginning of my HIM training last year and how unsupportive he was. Wow!!!! What a turnaround. Not only am I extreemly proud of him and his quest to get fit but also just overjoyed to be running with my best friend.<br><br>
Yesterday was a happy day!!!

XT, that is fablous!!!! Congratulations to you, with all the babysteps you took (and you didn't know you were taking, but showing him a good example) to bring him to yesterday's wonderful moment. Enjoy sharing more runs with him!

That's cool!<br><br>
I don't run with DH anymore unless he's doing a super short, super recovery. He's too much of a fasthole for my blood. <img alt="biggrin.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/biggrin.gif">

That really is a remarkable turnaround. Be supportive and even a cheerleader in his efforts, but don't push him or make him feel bad, and who knows, maybe the next time you'll post something to the effect of... "15 years, 2 month, and 3 days... my husband and I did a triathlon together."<br><br>
Good stuff. Keep being the positive role model that you are.

Very cool Kristine. I remember you lamenting the lack of support last year, so this is exciting news.<br><br>
Try to strike a balance between pushing him out the door and not pushing him <i>too</i> much, causing him to rebel. It took my wife a couple years of putting up with me prodding her out the door before she finally "became a runner" and no longer needed my nudges. She still does a little, but it's not like pulling teeth anymore.
