A week later and I’m still posting pics from #BirdInHandHalfmarathon. I’m a busy #motherrunner.  This pic is pre - race,  one of 40 photos of my friends.  A bunch of crazy #runners and I love them. #halffanatics #halfmarathoners #BIHHalfmarathon

“I have come to accept the feeling of not knowing where I am going. And I have trained myself to love it. Because it is only when we are suspended in mid-air with no landing in sight, that we force our wings to unravel and alas begin our flight.” ~ C. JoyBell C.~ Art by Picasso.  

This articulated exactly what I’m going through lately and I love it. :) Following my heart and whatever pulls me.  Art is on hold (again) and I just finished week 2 as a Reading Teacher at my elementary school and am loving it!  Feeling blessed and honored to be working with one of the best teachers. Everyday, I am in awe of my school’s teachers - the time, attention, and care they put into each kid - just AMAZING. Very humbled.

#BirdInHandHalfmarathon #sunrise. I think one of the best gifts you receive as a #runner is being able to watch the sunrise many times. #grateful #runningisagift #BIHHalfmarathon

Still posting pics from #BirdInHandHalfmarathon. I took a ton of pics.  Beautiful race day sunrise, on our way to the start line area. #selfie #BIHHalfmarathon #halfmarathon #halffanatic #runners

From last Saturday’s #BirdInHandHalfmarathon. Race morning. Woke up at 4:30am wondering if I fell asleep at all. Groggy but hey this is just another long run, right? 79 deg F and 98% humidity at 6am on our way to the start line. Praying for cloudy skies. #BIHHalfmarathon #halfmarathon #runners
