Love is...

I'm not sure about most of you, but my best thinking is done in the car. I'm not sure if that means I admit to being a bad driver or not but regardless...

I was thinking about love. Songs sung, poems written, photographs taken, words spoken...

Love is hard to find and even harder to define.
Love is different to each and every single person on earth. Even the person you fall in 'love' with has a different perception of your love and the love they want to receive.


I realize this blog is about running. But, running is an activity, sport, exercise that requires love. Love for the pain. Love for the sweat. Love for yourself. And for some of us, love for the actual feel of the pavement under our feet.

The last three months that I have taken off from blogging and being on here have been a journey to love myself. For a long, very long, time I put all of myself into everything and everyone else; my jobs, my friendships, my relationship. I thought doing all of that would help me feel whole, more me than if I spent time on myself. Boy, was I wrong. 

After losing my job and then ending a very long relationship I realized that I had lost more than just that. I had lost myself.

My goal of reclaiming the independent, outgoing woman I once was is slowly but surely making waves. I am happier now than I have been in years and I'm making changes in my life that I am very excited about.

So, thank you if you've stuck around, I can't wait to catch you up on all the races I've done since I went MIA.
