I have started a new Facebook community that will compliment my blog.

It will be a place to share, connect and motivate each other in the running community!¬†I’m looking forward to some great conversations about running, what inspires you and nutrition!
I’m hoping it will be a blend of people who are just thinking about running, all the way to the experienced runner.
I would love for you to join in the fun!

Just click on this link¬†and “like” the page.

Then share, and comment to your hearts content!

“I CHOOSE JOY”

No matter what language we speak, where we were born or where we live now…I’ve observed¬†all over the world, the one thing we¬†share in common¬†is “emotion”.

Last week was a very emotional week for me.¬† My little girl, transformed into a beautiful young lady as she went to her first prom, the Boston Marathon bombing & West , TX explosion occurred, then there was the passing of a friend of 17 years on Friday…I haven’t done much writing.¬† Or should I say…I have done some writing, but very little sharing.¬† It was a week that proved…running doesn’t fix everything…only Jesus can do that.

So today, I decided to share these few thoughts from last week:

What do you believe in enough to stand up for in the face of adversity. 

Those are the things that you love.

I love the Lord.  I love His healing power. 

I love the United States of America.  I love freedom.

I love friendships and the celebration of life.

I love that what the devil intends for evil, when we follow the Lords leading, He turns it into good.

and

I love it when “sad” is turned into “resolve”

-“determination”-

and eventually,

it’s own form of ¬†

“happy”.

Different…but¬†good.

¬†Today I choose joy…it is¬†a choice you know.

“That is so incredibly sad.”

Those were my thoughts most of the afternoon and into the evening last night.  I have many more thoughts, but none I would like to share at the moment. 

I did go for a run last night. 

When I felt like my calves were on fire, I couldn’t stop running.¬† It just didn’t seem right.

So…we will all continue running…and it seems there is another common feeling amongst runners.¬† Maybe…just maybe…we will have to try harder to qualify for the Boston Marathon next year.
