We met through a mutual friend that thought it was no coincidence that we had a lot in common, but maybe it was meant to be. The universe has a way of bringing you together even if you aren’t looking. After meeting and dating it was a bit strange how much we were alike. Even now, it’s still a bit scary how similar we are, but our family reminds us often. We can see Diana (aka my niece) rolling her eyes now.
Our love for running help cement the relationship. Although one of us is much faster than the other, it works in both our favors. We also realized our definite love of travel, food, and fun. Travel is a big deal for us. Of course, with every destination comes new foods to try. Did we mention we like food too, especially trying new restaurants and dishes! Maybe that’s the reason why we must run so much.
But this particular journey really started on one of our four-day trips out of town. This time to North Bimini Island in the Bahamas. It was supposed to be a quick over and back. We truly enjoyed this wonderful island. We rode bikes, snorkeled crystal blue waters and a shipwreck, did a couple morning runs, enjoyed conch at many meals, and then went for one last delicious meal of sushi before heading back home. And just like that on the last night, it happened. ? The next thing we knew, we were engaged and starting a bond for the rest of our lives.
We’ll end with this… we have finished many, many 5Ks, but soon, we will be embarking on the marathon.
