Each and every day I ask my children – Do you know how much I love you?
All the stars in the sky? YES
All the sand on the beach? YES
All the buildings in the world? YES
Chloe, Miles and I have a never ending amount of ways that we find to say I love you.
This weekend I said to them – I LOVE YOU MORE THAN RUNNING.
I didn’t think about it when I said it – I just did.
The more and more I thought about it – I realized just how INSANE my love for them is.
I love stars but if suddenly there weren’t any – I would be okay.
Same with the sand on the beach – I love the beach, it’s one of my favorite places – but if the beach didn’t exist anymore I would be okay.
Take running away from me and I might not be able to function. A cloud of sadness may overwhelm me. I think about running each and every day. Running is constantly on my mind in one way or another. Races, training, blogging, marketing….all aspects of running run through my head.
To say that I love something MORE than running is huge. I would give up running, blogging, racing, training – you name it – for MY CHILDREN.
I love them more than life itself. Those are not just words to me. I literally love them more than life itself and I certainly LOVE THEM MORE THAN RUNNING.
This weekend hubby said – come quick. I jumped up and looked at my peanuts sitting together on the chair watching a movie. BE.STILL.MY.HEART.
