If you saw this sign during your Saturday morning long run would you continue forward or turn around?
Here's where I confess:
Seeing this sign a few miles into my recent Saturday solo long run, I was tempted to turn around. Irritation arose and thoughts of a rough, messy trail started running through my mind.
I NEEDED a long run~PLANNED a long run~It was my birthday-I wanted cake!
I thought about life, my life, life in general, those around me who's life touches mine. I thought in reality that is what my life path is~a trail under construction. Portions completed, portions remain unforged, portions need repair- a life under construction. Thankful as I am for each section of smooth path in my life, a sense of joy came over me as I realized that there as many paths to be forged in my life as there are paths of my life that are under construction.
Life can be a "trail under construction". Head out on that trail people! You never know what you will find there.
This time I found a smooth beautiful new trail and a 6 mile run!
