  Two of my friends, married to each other, are going through some tough marital times.  Out of respect for both of them, I’m not going to go into the issues.  I run with one of them on a fairly regular basis, the other I don’t see as much.  But, they are both my friends.

  I’m really concerned about both of them, and have been thinking about them quite a lot.  I’m truly concerned, and I’m trying to be supportive to both of them.  I have heard both sides of the story, although more from one than the other.  But, I know that the issues are not only on one side.  They have both contributed to the issues, and they both realize that. 

  I’m pretty sure they are going to split up.  In fact, I think that’s been going on for quite a while.  It really makes me sad.  I love them both, and would love to have them stay together.  I am concerned that neither of them realize how difficult the split will be, and how hard it will be to be a single parent. 

  It’s amazing the things we learn about someone when we run.  I’ve become very close to some of my running friends.  I’ve learned a lot about people, and shared a lot of experiences that most will never understand.  It also amazing how in depth a conversation can get over the course of a 5 or 10 mile run.  Especially when you’re slow like me.
