Like I said before I’m a sucker for quotes – I love them – they inspire me – they make me want to be a better person.

I have a card hanging in my closet from one of my very best friends – on the front it says – Be Happy For This Moment – For This Moment is Your Life. A truer statement I could not say right now. With all that is going on in the world today – with the crazy economic situation we are in – with the crumbling housing market and people loosing their jobs – I think we should all take a moment to be happy. Be happy that in spite of all the problems going on in the world – we are still in this world and still have a lot to be thankful for.

I’m a spiritual runner – I feel closest to God when running and racing. We have conversations – I thank Him during every race – thank you that I have legs to runthank you that I have lungs to breathethank you for all you have given me. It’s sad and great that people are going back to the basics (participation in races and in running in general is UP) – finding happiness in the little things in life – it’s sad that it took something such as a recession to bring people back to their roots – but great that we are realizing what really matters.

Running brings me joy – it makes me happy – it makes me healthy – makes me a better person – better mommy – better friend – better wife – it makes me BETTER.

Ralph Waldo Emerson is a favorite of mine and so tonight I leave you with this quote ~ Unless you try to do something beyond what you have already mastered, you will never grow

Off to bed – must rest – 20 tomorrow alone on the WAD
