I love to run.  I love my family, friends, volunteer work, coffee.  But I LOVE to run.

Running has brought a measure of stability to a very uncertain period in my life.   In short, running grounds me.

Through running, I find my center, and my space.   Running is  simple.  One foot in front of the other.

The very act puts me in touch with my inner self.  When I run, I discover that I’m capable of more than I ever thought I was.  I run to be better, stronger and faster.    But beneath it all, running brings me joy.  Running is the essence of who I am.

Our sport becomes not just what we do but an integral symbol—on all levels—of who we are.

When I run,  I am a better person. I am a better daughter, sister, friend.   I am a better colleague and employee.

There is something immensely satisfying about completing a workout, be it a Sunday morning long run, or a particularly brutal speed or hill session.  Tired achy legs,  soggy pony tails, and suddenly all is right with the world.
