Seizing life's joys and challenges physically, mentally, and emotionally.

Sun, Sun, Sun

Sunshine can make so much look and feel so much better. Yesterday was a snowy, cold, dark day. Today the sun is shining, the temperature is rising, and I hear thuds of snow and ice melting and falling off the roof. What better day for a long run? I headed out as the sun was warming the late morning and ran 8 miles – averaging 20 seconds a mile faster than last week when I was dragging so badly. Now, all is relative since I think today was a warmer day to run at a balmy 38 degrees fahrenheit.  Come April or May I will have a bit of a different perspective. But today I loved it.

Some workouts inspire me to write more than today. Some workouts and days just simply inspire me. Today is a good day. A day to take in the sunshine, feel great about my run, and spend time with people dear to me. A sunny Sunday in February,  it seems like years since it’s been here… and I say it’s all right.

I want to encourage everyone to follow your passions, not just what is easy. It is in overcoming hurdles and barriers that we truly test our limits and abilities. There is much more we are capable of if we only believe in ourselves.
