Sole Sisterhood. That's what our shirts say. The back says, "Friends to the Finish." This is my friend and awesome running partner, Jen, and me in San Antonio when we ran the Rock 'n' Roll Half Marathon in November. We bought these shirts at the Expo because we're cheesy like that (and the shirts are super cute and soft!) Jen has asked us to link up with something about sisterhood. The first thing that came to mind was this picture.
Don't we look like rockstars? LOL! This photo captures sisterhood on so many levels. Our sisterhood runs deep, Jen and me. Of course, we run together. We run MANY miles together training for marathons and whatever else we decide to run. We are sisters but also friendly competitors. Our running sisterhood means we encourage each other, train together, complain together, pour out our hearts to each other, push each other, make each other laugh, and make excuses for why a run wasn't our best. :) We provide each other with a little friendly competition, yet we drag the other one out into 18 degree weather to get that last long run in before the race. Yeah, that's sisterhood.
There are many ways we are not alike...she's younger....she's an introvert....she's a much better writer than me.....and a faster runner.....
but these things do not affect our sisterhood.
It isn't the things we have in common that make a sisterhood. Those things bring us together initially, but it's the times and words we share with one another that really bond us. This is true for any sisterhood.
