It’s an honor to know you sir…

 

I have a friend that is running The Boston Marathon tomorrow.

Many see him living his dream, but have no idea the road he has traveled to get there.

If you know a Boston Marathoner, you should consider it an honor to have met them.

Running friends are the best kind of friends….

This blog post is for my friend & fellow runner, Julia Cantley of Julia Cantley Photography.

“She keeps me going. We all need friends like that.” ❤

I just returned from a much needed run with her at her gym.
I almost didn’t go, because I HAVE SO MUCH TO DO!  Then I thought, “If I don’t have 20-30 minutes to take time for myself then I’m just TOO BUSY!”

At the end of our run, she mentioned that I really needed to make a new blog entry.  I’m always surprised when she says that, but its nice that she notices.  🙂
Again, I said….“I have just been too busy.”

So, for Julia, I will share my thoughts from yesterday.  I typed it, but I just didn’t feel like sharing….I get that way sometimes.

“I LOVE the people that I get to run with, they’re right up there with my church family. I just really enjoy being in their presence.

Would I LOVE them as much if we spent more than an hour or two at a time together? I have no idea!

I’m guessing…probably not. 

So, for now, I’ll just enjoy the moment(s). Spending time with self motivated, supportive, happy, inspirational people is truly a blessing.

I’m very thankful!”

I am reminded of a post that I wrote last year.

When I run, I get to live for a moment in my dream world.  It’s one of my favorite places to be.

Happy Running Everyone!

I have no VALID excuse…

“I have no excuse.”

This was my response concerning not showing up at our 5:15am group run today.

I typed it….but that’s not really what I wanted to say!

I wanted to type my long list of excuses.  There are some really good ones!  

Would you like to hear them?  

No?

…I didn’t think so.

So possibly I typed the wrong statement today.

I should have typed, “I have a whole host of excuses, but none are valid enough to excuse my choice to stay in the bed this morning.”

Or simply:

“I have no VALID excuse.”

Sometimes that’s hard to admit.
