My husband surprised me with a visit to tour my “dream home” the other day. It was everything on my “list”, it even had a spectacular view AND was only 5 minutes from shopping.
(He’d always said I couldn’t have both a pretty view and live close to town too.)
I LOVED IT!
Where would I run?…and what about our running group?
We were just dream building anyway, but I told him that I couldn’t move there…I couldn’t leave my running friends. 🙂
In this town of beauty pageants, politics, baseball, hunting, sweet tea and AU/AL football(none of which mean a thing to me), I never felt like I really belonged here until I started running.
I often wonder if every running group is as great as mine…I can’t imagine so…
What a great group of people!
We get to have all the fun…
Thanks for keeping me going Chilton Runners!
Last week during an early morning run, I looked up and thought:
“Wow! Those stars sure are shining bright today!”
Then I realized that it wasn’t that the stars were any different than usual.
The stars don’t change.
Only their environment does.So, the conditions were favorable for shining that day…

I haven’t ran since Thursday.
We were on vacation & I slept in each day.
Trading in my usual alarm clock(s) & starlit skies, I instead welcomed the morning sunshine streaming through my wall of sliding glass doors.
As I looked out the window at this beautiful bay view…I never once wished that I was out there running.
I don’t regret one minute of my 5 day running vacation.
A refreshing break was just what I needed.
Tomorrow’s a new day….
Time to finish our last full week of half marathon training!
~just me…my friends…and our flashlights~ ❤
Without fail…every time that I’m getting ready to run I have the same exact thought.
I look in the mirror and think, “It’s so nice to be able to brush my teeth, throw my hair in a ponytail and run out the door….and nobody cares.”
I love that about running.
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.
“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?
…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.”
“I have no VALID excuse.”
Sometimes that’s hard to admit.
