Every once in a while my Austin bff and I get these ideas in our heads.
Wouldn’t it be a good idea to walk the entire hike and bike trail once a month?
(we lasted 6 months)
We should get up at the ass crack of dawn and do work out videos in the parking lot for 60 days.
(we made it an impressive 50)
Let’s go running before the sun comes up!!
(we made it to two weeks before our 5k, which seemed like the right time to quite training)
Let’s go swimming at 7am every Monday!
This morning she picked me up at 7am, loaded with all of our swim gear we walked through the gates to the pool. We took one look at the pool full of swimmers, I remembered how much I love my cozy hoodie and not being in cold water before the sun is up, and we both looked at each other and said, “So coffee at Jo’s instead?”
That’s why we’re bff.
Update: I told this story to a friend later that day. His response was, “well, did you go back and swim after coffee?” He clearly missed the point.
