Buying a House?

     I love running…if you read my blog you know that already.  The problem is that I don’t always have something to say about running and that is kind of what my blog has turned into…a runner’s blog.  I think I have decided that I am going to continue to write about running when I have something new to share but I would also like to write about other things.  For instance, we are moving in June and we have decided we are going to buy a house instead of renting.  In fact we just put an offer on a beautiful house we found through our agent. 

     There is another offer on the house already so we may, or may not, get it but how exciting and scary!   This house has everything we are looking for and is selling at a great price so we are keeping our fingers crossed! If we don’t get it that’s ok too…we will just keep looking!

Celebrate Every Run!

     As a runner I follow a training plan.  I follow this plan because I know it will lead me to success.  I have followed these plans before and I have successfully completed many races.  I don’t know if you are like me though because I still triumph after every substantial run.  Sunday I ran 15 miles.  I have run 15 miles before and I have done it well.  So this should be pretty normal right? Not in my book! Running 15 miles anytime, or any place, is something to celebrate! Hell…just getting out there and going for a run is pretty great! I don’t ever want to get to a point where I run a “long” distance and am not in awe of myself, of my body, of my mind!!!  I am a runner and I put my body through a lot. I should appreciate every run…congratulate myself after every hard push! I deserve it and my body deserves it! I am a runner…I have trained for many races…I have run many races…I still allow myself to celebrate every run. Run like you know you can, but run like you never thought you could!
