Friday is usually one of my longest days at work, but the atmosphere is different – everyone knows the weekend is here. It’s a fun day!! Today I’ll be home building my business and working on marketing so I can once again experience the joy of a fun, busy Friday.
The accident I witnessed Tuesday has haunted me this week. I’ve had people close to me die, I’ve witnessed worse accidents and deaths, but it definitely gave me pause and pushed me to reevaluate my own life. This is a good thing. What’s important to me? What will I leave behind? What will people remember about me? What are my dreams? How can I fulfill them? My usually sunny disposition has been replaced with introspection for a couple days. Today, however, I woke up feeling much more like myself.
Today I have a four miler slated and (finally) the wind is blissfully much more silent. Tomorrow is my trail half marathon and I’m STOKED!! I’ve run it a couple times, but since I haven’t signed up for any races the last two years I’m even more excited! It’s been great to have been busy and still run the last two years but it’s even better to take the time (and the money) and actually participate in events! The weather is projected to be in the high 50’s, sunny with calm winds. YIPPEE!! Sounds like running skirt and BodyRock Sport bra type of running!! My favorite!!
Here’s to an exceptional race this weekend, good weather and making dreams a reality!!
