A year ago I didn't know what the future held.  I was terrified of life, of seeing people I knew, of having to tell people what happened, of questions I didn't have an answer to.  Looking back, I don't know where the strength to do it came from.  My life isn't perfect now.  It's still a mess, every single day.  I don't know what life holds and I don't really know where I'm headed.  Some days are still a struggle.  But life is better, and that's the feeling I'm going to follow

Running for a Reason

I've never been much of a runner.  Sure I do the occasional run just to keep almost in shape, but I've never been committed to it.  I recently found a reason to get out of bed early enough to get a run in in the beautiful mountain air. Why am I missing precious sleep time when I have no reason to be out of bed before 9 am?   The Teach the Children Annual 5k fun run.  We all know I'm a bit of a sucker for good causes (enter the 3 pair of TOMS I wear constantly, the Falling Whistle I wear every single day, and my ambition to learn sign language so I can return to Ghana with Signs of Hope International)  I don't believe I'm a goody two shoes by any means, but I love all of these organizations and am trying to my part to help where I can.  The 5k is July 9th in Murray at 7am.  If any of you would like to join me fill out a registration form and let's get running!
