Awesome!

Runners have an unspoken bond that’s unmatched in any other sport. We’re trusting of complete strangers. In every other group I’ve joined in my life, trust is earned gradually—it has to be proven. With most runners I’ve met, trust is assumed. We support each other immediately and without hesitation. More than any other group, my running friends are fiercely loyal. I don’t know why “good people run,” but I have a guess. We build relationships outside in nature, forcing us to leave the stress, anxiety, and societal pressures behind for just an hour or so. We leave the drama at work, family stress, and we just focus on the run. All we need to have a good time is a pair of shoes.

The Positive Challenge

thatsminethankyou:

My friend tagged me in this on Facebook…to post three positive things for the next five days.

Last week, I wrote on a sticky note, “Write down something positive about something, someone, or yourself every day.” I didn’t really stick to it, so this “challenge” comes at a good time.

I share WAY…

Three positive things:
1. I have a day off today. 3 12hr shifts just beat hell out of me and today I don’t have to do that. I can do anything. Stay in my pjs or go run 15 miles. I can play red dead redemption and eat egg burritos. It’s on me
2. My sons. I love those guys. They make me laugh and worry and nurture and make me better then I was so much that I try hard to return the favor.
3. Quiet. Kind of related to 1. But it’s just quiet right now. The sun is just up. The boys are sleeping. Aside from the fan there is only peace. It’s so fragile sometimes. I soak it in like art. Like someone I’ll never see again. It settles me.
