Day 02 - A picture of you and the person you have been closest with the longest.

Day 02 - A picture of you and the person you have been closest with the longest.

This one's really hard. A few years ago, right around the time I started running, I did a little "friendship evaluation". I thought hard about the people that I called my friends and made some tough decisions about whether they should be in my life or not. Those that were just in my life so that they had someone to go drinking with, speak negatively to or that just weren't adding anything positive to MY life were removed from my life. It was really hard to see some of them go and others it was no big deal. You see, when I started making new friends through running - friends with positive attitudes and healthier habits, people that were there for me when I needed them and accepted my help when they needed it.... I realized that, sadly enough, I had no real, true friends. So! My choice for the person that I've been closest with the longest is my Sparkbuddy KWASYLIW and real life friend - Kerry.
I don't know if she'll see this but I hope that, if/when she does, she realizes how much her friendship has meant to me these past few years. Thanks lady. I love you.

    I can't wait until my schedule becomes more regular so I can also join in with more running activities. I'm in the same boat of not really having any friends.

    BTW, is that Shane Yellowbird?

    I did the same years ago and it's so worth it because then you know your life is full of people you truly value and who truly value you. And lovely tribute to your friend, Kerry. So sweet!

    Oh, you know I did the exact same thing some years ago. I was lucky that I had my 3 best g-friends that I could truly call friends but I pretty much let everyone else go. Some of the people I have found on SP I may never meet face to face but they have become some of my best friends in this world! Good for you!
