Tired of the Meanness

As I walked through Costco today I could sense a change in the people. It seems as if we were all a bit subdued, quiet, going about our business by rote. Of course I’m the first to admit that this could also be just me projecting my feelings onto the world around me. Is it? […]

Gratitude 3/22

While in Paris and admiring the history all around me I’m going to share some photos from Torgau, Germany. We visited this city a little ove a week ago. I have two strong memories! First, it was sooooo cold! Second there was an unbelievably beautiful spiral staircase.  I’m grateful that I thought to look up […]

Are you familiar with wavy glass? It’s the glass in the original windows of old houses. In some mysterious way glass, I’m told, is liquid (I read up on this a long time ago but don’t remember the details). The point for today is that wavy glass creates beautiful patterns as the sun shines through […]

Just Go! Gratitude 2/18

Today’s long run was 11 miles…and I was looking forward to it! But yesterday’s storm wasn’t quite done with us, so we woke to a nice steady rain ( thankfully not the downpour and wind of yesterday). As we left the house (Matt and Megan ran with me) the rain continued, and our normal route was […]

Gratitude 2/13

I twisted me knee a bit during an exercise class on Friday. At the time I didn’t think of injury, but was very careful to not twist it again. On Saturday I had my glorious 9 mile run up and down a hill and felt to very brief stabs of pain (almost like a cramp) […]

Gratitude 2/12

Yesterday’s run was so beautiful I decided to take Scott with for a walk today.  Today I am personally thankful for: beautiful sunshine and the sound of running water; Girl Scout cookies 😬; and the call of Jesus to love our neighbors…even if doing so leads to breaking unjust laws. I’m thankful for this call […]

Gratitude 2/11

This week I ran 25.5 miles, and except for the week of the Carlsbad Marathon, this was the most mileage for 2017. Taper and recovery account for all the other low mileage weeks. This 25.5 marks the first week of training for Mountains 2 Beach on May 28, only 15 weeks away. Yikes! Today’s long […]

Gratitude 2/10

Today I was able to run my scheduled 6 miles with a friend. It was wonderful to be able to chat while easily covering those miles. When I first started running, it was just me. My daughter also began running at about the same time but we were not on the same schedules. Then my […]

Gratitude 2/9

Are you taking care of yourself? Over the past few days I’ve read posts from people who are feeling tired and discouraged. I’m learning that protest is not easy, especially when there is something new every day that can be protested. I decided that I need to focus my efforts on the call of faith […]

Gratitude 2/8

“Jesus spoke to them saying, ‘I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will never walk in darkness but will have the light of life.’” -John 8:12 What does it mean to have the light of life? I would guess some of us have differing interpretations. For me, it is experienced in speaking, […]
