“I run for I don’t know how long. Hours, maybe, or days… You have to understand. I am no one special….I am five feet two inches tall and I am in-between in every way. But I have a secret. You can build walls all the way to the sky and I will find a way to fly above them. You can try to pin me down with a hundred thousand arms, but I will find a way to resist. And there are many of us out there, more than you think. People who refuse to stop believing. People who refuse to come to earth. People who love in a world without walls, people who love into hate, into refusal, against hope,and without fear.”― Lauren Oliver, Delirium; Pastel drawing by me. :) #love #thisisme

Time to unwind and relax…..

Much easier to train for a marathon than plan/organize/direct an elementary school’s 5K race…however, both are equally rewarding. #Ran our new 5k course this year to figure out flow, water stop location, mile marker locations, note issues, etc, etc, etc, etc, etc.   #raceplanning #racedirectors #organizing5k

My fortune yesterday was, “Free yourself from all cares. Have a good time.” I enjoyed every mile of #CherryBlossom10Miler today.  I ran a happy pace. It was a beautiful spring day in DC, and it reminded me that in the midst of my hectic, crazy days, #running helps me slow down, relax, unwind, and center my soul. #Grateful #blessed #ilovetorun #Runhappy. The End. :)
