Energizer Bunny?

Friday, January 23, 2009

I usually walk in the park in the morning or middle of the day and no one else is there. I didn't get there until about 4:15 today so there were others there. There was a lady walking the opposite way around the track than I was going. I'm really glad she was going the other direction, because it would have been embarrassing to be lapped, maybe more than once! I was surprised though, it made me walk faster and for 10 - 20 minutes longer than I usually walk.

She had on a pink shirt and I keep thinking she must be the energizer bunny!

    The same thing happens to me when I swim. When I'm swimming next to someone who can really move, I find myself pushing even harder to get to that level.

    haha, that's funny. Good that you were able to walk a little longer and maybe a little faster than usual and a smile while envisioning her as the Energizer Bunny. Sounds like a good walk in the park. =)

    I'm always amazed at how much faster I can move when there is someone else around doing more. I've caught myself on bike rides going 3 to 6 miles an hour faster when I'm trying to keep up with someone else. Same with walking: I always move faster when I have someone to pace with.
