slippery slope

Wednesday, April 28, 2010

Does your life sometimes feel like this?  Sliding fast down a slippery slope with curves and turns...Just when you get comfortable with one course, it up and changes on you?

Lately I have been feeling pretty comfortable with my life.  Changes we have made for the better, time spent with family and friends is refreshing and rewarding.  But when I took this photo, all I could think of is how well it symbolizes how I feel much of the time.  I like things to be changing and moving and growing, but when I stop to smell the tulips for a bit, I remember how nice they smell, and I have to remind myself to slow down.  I have to remind myself to enjoy this time...because all too soon, it will change...again!

the tulips in my life

A letter of thanks to the running gods

Thursday, April 15, 2010

  1. See above photo.  Thanks for the beautiful lilac blooms, and more thanks for the scent that follows me on my long runs through residential areas.
  2. Thanks for introducing me to Bondi Bands.  They've saved my life...fashionably. (If you don't know about them, you hafta get over to the website and get some!)
  3. Thanks for Saucony.  I've put on a lot of miles in this most recent pair of Saucony shoes.  No injuries or complaints by my feet to date.  Thanks for that!
  4. See below photo.  Thanks for these hooligans.  They try hard not to complain and really cheer me on when I am putting on so many miles at the end of this training.

    • my past 2 weeks have been mentally and emotionally exhausting; I think I am over the hump now
    • I need some creativity in my life; I need some time and a place for creativity in my lkife
    • I have the best friends ever; dinner with one, wine with another, lunch with another and dinner with yet another all this week
    • I love my kids; ages 8 and 9 are the best.  Really, they are
    • family is all you have; it is the ONLY permanent thing in this world
