And I'll tell you my truth- who I run with. (Alas, dear Reader, I speak not of a rebirth of my jogging enthusiasm- that didn't last long at all... No. I refer to my circle).
It is clearer to me than ever before that going out of our way to build nourishing bonds with others is always a good idea.
This year gone by, my coaches, pals and peers have taken turns to lead me, love me, and lull me through, and that's support I've been pumped to receive in addition to the brilliant base I am so lucky to have at home.
When I first started running these Mastermind Groups in the summer, I hadn't consciously realised that I was seeking to re-create my experience for others.
I thought it was about goals and plans- and it was/ is/ forever shall be, to an extent.
But it has been so much more, through some of the most testing months of our collective lives.
