I don't really have one that I work out with. I've found I'm very good at competing with myself. Always trying to break my last timed run, or use more weight. At my crossfit gym obviously I have trainers there to push me but as far as having a workout buddy, I don't. If I were you I would just compete with yourself. It makes working out a whole lot more fun. Plus there's always room for improvement in anyone.

It took me forever to find people to work out with, and even then, we have conflicting schedules. About 1.5 years after I started my journey, a couple of my friends got inspired to start running (we had been in a mommy/play group together) and asked me for advice. Later I ran into an old friend of my brother's and it turned out she was into running. Then when I started the nursing program, 2 other students turned out to also be trail runners, and we've gone a few times (the few people with my schedule!). For the most part, I've really been on my own. I can count on my hands how many runs I've done with other people.
Maybe post something on FB? The moms that got into running were inspired by all of my FB posts about running and my weight loss, and it finally got them moving! You never know who might be interested! Just put it out there as much as you can, you'll find people!

For sure!! It's especially tough when that's what's keeping you accountable.

This! DS loves to do my DVDs with me, and begs to go for runs, hikes and bike rides with me!
