No, We're Not There Yet
Not every runner has impressive reserves of dedication. You may be into running more for the camaraderie and together time than for the physical bennies. Whatever your motivation, it's not OK to project your lack of interest or even your desperation for it to be over to your running mate. Some no-no's are: Asking to stop for ice cream or a donut on the way home; complaining; stopping to pick flowers; complaining; breaking stride to take pictures or talk to strangers; complaining.
