this morning was beautifully sunny - a great morning for a run. i ran a little 3K race and as i came around my first long lap there was little kai along the street clapping for me and yelling "go mama!" really, at that point i felt like running on air.
***i found out this evening that i came in 2nd place in my age group for this race! granted, this wasn't a big race or anything -- but i did get a little silver medal -- and even if they may have only been a handful of women in my age group...it sure has made me smile.***
" I always loved running... it was something you could do by yourself, and under your own power. You could go in any direction, fast or slow as you wanted, fighting the wind if you felt like it, seeking out new sights just on the strength of your feet and the courage of your lungs." ~Jesse Owens
