Its on

Well the training is on. I am rocking and rolling the runs and everything that comes along with them in prep of BOSTON. Although I am not actually in as of yet, I gots an insider doing his very best to do so. keep those fingies crossed my friends. They say if you believe it, you can achieve it--I know I know who brought the cheese cake? Anyway, my life outside of work has begun to revolve around my long runs, my tempo runs, some hills peppered with some weights, yoga and cross training activities. I love it. I love pushing myself and being back into this groove. It feels good. I am reminded every run day how much I truly love the sport of running. The pure exhilaration of it all. My longest run to date has been 22K and the conditions were far from ideal but I ran a negative split up and down hills with wind in my face. This coming weekend I am hitting the longest of long in my training...a whopping 36 clicks. wowza. I know once I hit that first 10 I will be off to the races. As long as I gots my gels, water and tunes in tow I know I will be good to go. So it is on, my friends. I am ready for the challenges ahead of me in the coming weeks. I am ready for the ice baths and the evenings spent with castor oil on my knees. Get ready BOSTON (fingies crossed very tightly), here I come! Bring it!


A true Soul Mate is a Mirror

"People think a soul mate is your perfect fit, and that’s what everyone wants. But a true soul mate is a mirror, the person who shows you everything that’s holding you back, the person who brings you to your own attention so you can change your life. A true soul mate is probably the most important person you’ll ever meet, because they tear down your walls and smack you awake. But to live with a soul mate forever? Nah. Too painful. Soul mates, they come into your life just to reveal another layer of yourself to you and then they leave." - EPL

As I was meandering about the ole net and catching up on all my fave blogs I came about the above comment/quote that resonated. It resonated because I believe I had read it somewhere before, in some book, long ago. And when I read it I turned over the corner of such page to be able to go back to it and ponder it again. It hit home with such intensity at the time. Perhaps it is not the same quote by the same author but the same thought is there. loud and quite clear. The above quote has done the same. There have been peeps in my life whom have revealed layers of me and sometimes, without a whisper, gone. lost into the night of life. In someways it is disheartening and sad but in others so refreshing and wonderous to have had that moment stuck in time. That moment forever engraved on my soul and in my heart. Although we always wish for what was or for what could have been, I am just so darn thankful for what is because of what was.

"I prayed for change, so I changed my mind.
I prayed for guidance and learned to trust myself.
I prayed for happiness and realized I am not my ego.
I prayed for peace and learned to accept others unconditionally.
I prayed for abundance and realized my doubt kept it out.
I prayed for wealth and realized it is my health.
I prayed for a miracle and realized I am the miracle.
I prayed for a soul mate and realized I am the One.
I prayed for love and realized it's always knocking, but I have to let it in."
