Grazie

I woke up this morning tired, achy, and kind of grumpy. I was up throughout the night with a throwing-up child. I was stiff from moving furniture and boxes the day before for a move that I didn’t want to do.  Today was Week 3 Day 1 and it was raining and cold…again.  I really didn’t want to go running, I just wanted to stay in my nice cozy bed. Well, maybe I’ll just get changed, take a look at the weather forecast, see what my sisters have been up to on the blog.  Just reading through their amusing and clever posts motivated me to put on my running shoes.

I thought about the Race for the Cure that Heather just finished (good for you girl!).  I had run this race before in California and remember the running Survivors and those running In Memory Of.  I thought again about Getting to run.  How lucky are we?  Quite honestly I didn’t totally enjoy my outing this morning, but I’m glad I did it and I felt much better afterwords.   So just a simple thanks this morning to my sisters for the inspiration (the Sullivan ones and all those other ones out there).

  1. I felt very lucky indeed. Seeing a cancer survivor running up hill while pushing a wheel chair carrying another cancer survivor really made the point to me that I had nothing to complain about.

  2. Grazie to you, too sisters.
    I’m signing up for the NYC Race for the Cure in September. Which I would never have considered doing — never — without you guys.
    Humans are everything.

    And now you have motivated me off to my run in oddly cold as crap weather with massive wind gusts.

    Take delight…
