There will be other races at other times

We met several years ago and we stay in touch.

Sometime in the last year or two, it came to my attention that she had participated in over 40 races. I knew she was a runner, but had no idea where all she had been and what all she had done.

She chose to take a long break because of new additions to the family.

A few weeks back she told me it was time to select a time and place to compete again.

She signed up and the training began, but then the virus showed up. Her race hasn’t been cancelled yet, but she’s thinking it may be.

Her attitude towards that possiblity is worthy of note, and extremely inspiring to me. She said there will be more races, at another time, and I will be there!

Running on Empty

Jackson Browne’s awesome song from the movie Forrest Gump.

Near the beginning he sings

“In 65, I was 17 and running up 101”

I was running up 101 in California when this song came on my IPOD. That was pretty cool.
