I manage a country homestead and the lives of my 4 babies ages 10,8,5 and 3. I LOVE TO RUN and NEED to keep healthy and fit for my SANITY!! Seriously....All problems are solved when I am running.

Making MY health a priority allows me to be the mother and wife that I need to be for them.

Sunday Sunny Silence

Went for my long run today. At one point everything was still. There was no wind, no cars, no train, no animals...nothing. Just me, the sun, and the earth. All I could hear was the rhythm of my feet on the gravel and the sound of my breathing.

I just wanted to stop for a moment but right then it was just me and the world. It is a very hard feeling to describe but listening to the sound of my body pushing through the silence was amazing. I felt alive and powerful, yet humbled and small.

How often are we surrounded by such silence É(french keyboard on thanks to Audrey...that is a question mark)

We are constantly surrounded by noise of all sorts, always thinking and processing. I was able to focus on the sun, focus on the trees and the road and just BREATHE....

It was MY time...MY worship and I thank God for it.

THIS is why I run.
