This morning, the run club I co-founded sponsored a Run for Seconds 10K.
Bright and early
Get it done!
My eldest son joined me and even ran with me a little bit. My dearest friend and co-founder of the run club and I were able to run a few steps together. However, most of the 6.15 miles was spent alone on the trail.
My glasses fogged for the first 3 miles so the trail was blurry which changed my perspective As I was running I was reminded of a post I wrote about turning around and changing your point of view.
As I ran back I was reminded of just how much I am:
THANKFUL for this community of runners.
THANKFUL that at 45 I can still run-and run faster.
THANKFUL that I have 4 awesome children, several who will join me when I run.
THANKFUL for the friends who have and continue to be there for me.
THANKFUL for my good friend who always helps me put my life in perspective.
THANKFUL for the guy who saw something in me that I never would have-and encourages me to keep finding ME.
THANKFUL I am a runner!
