Ah…Valentine’s Day…a day for hearts and flowers and love and chocolate and romance and…oh, forget all that. All a runner wants for Valentine’s Day is a good five-miler, but since today is sort of a couples kind of day, I thought I’d ask all of you — Who is your dream running date?

David Beckham (soccer star) :) — Christine Kalie

How about John “the penguin” Bingham? — Sarah Rose

Hugh Jackman. I don’t really know if he’s a runner, but he runs a lot in the movies and that’s good enough for me. :) — Rhonda Berlin

Neil Patrick Harris because he’s funny, so I’d have fun & not realize how far I was running. — Katie Berlin, 10-year-old daughter of Rhonda Berlin

My wife Wendy! I have been working hard trying to get her out there running without much luck. She has done a few walks, so it is a start. Maybe some day…I won’t stop trying! — Dennis Albrewczynski

Tim. McGraw. Period. That’s a fantasy. I’d also like to run with Jimmy Carter, but he’s getting old, so I could be responsible for killing him. and I’d hate to have that hanging over me. — Eloise Hawking

Hines Ward! (Pittsburgh Steelers receiver) — Renee Uht

I have cruised with John Bingham. He is returning to running after an injury and is as funny and nice as in his books. I have a running date almost every Saturday and could not find anyone better than our PC running group. — Suzanne Carstater

Aaron Rodgers! (Quarterback of the Green Bay Packers) — Karen Groshek

Someone strong enough to carry me….or Beyonce. — Tim May

My dad. — Ken Rodland

Katherine Switzer, first woman to run the Boston marathon. — Michelle Griffith-Aresco

Zola Budd, of course — Tom Madura (Erie’s original barefoot runner)

I prefer running by myself. I’m able to keep up, don’t run too fast, don’t complain or talk too much. I’m my ideal running date! — Tom Toale

Lance Armstrong! — Ange Eberlein

 

As for me, my dream running partner would be John Cusack. I don’t know if he’s a runner. I seriously doubt he is, but I don’t care. I’d walk or skip or shuffle or do the freaking Electric Slide for five miles if he wanted me to.

Of course, John doesn’t know that I’m alive or that I’ve carried a torch for him since “Better off Dead” in 1985 and…so today I’ll have to settle for a run with my own leading man….who actually kinda-sorta looks like J.C., eh?  :-)

    Cute post, Heather.
    The real question is, who would Dan be running with while you’re out skipping and shuffling (is that what the kids are calling it now?) with John Cusack? Or was he afraid to weigh in? :-)
