good morning

good morning
to you!

I took this just before my run at about 6:20ish this morning. For some reason I feel the need to claim my love for this sport (if you will.) I am trying to be more consistent with writing here and documenting my journey.

Completely inspired by my husband Shawn, I started running two years ago and it has been one of the hardest and fabulous experiences of my life. There have been injuries, other physical roadblocks and no matter what comes my way, I keep running. I have never been so persistent and passionate about anything in my life. In a way I guess it parallels my passion for art and creating. It fuels me physically, emotionally and spiritually. I feel strong and humbled at the same time.

Tomorrow night I am running the Lifetime Fitness Torchlight 5k with Shawn. He is a bit of a speedster, but is going to kick back and run with me at my pace - the sweetheart that he is!
I am going to try to bring my camera, which seems to be of more concern to me than carrying water. Funny.

Happy wishes for the day!
