Happy Easter!

Wild iris seen on my run.

2 Corinthians 5:17
Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new.

It's been a wonderful weekend filled with relay excitement, news on the race lottery I entered, Easter candy, egg hunts, family, and worship.

Today I am resting, full of thanksgiving, for so many things.
Above all else, I am grateful that Jesus conquered death and in His sacrifice I have been given new life.

~Blessings to you and yours~
Happy Easter!

Taking a leap

I bit the bullet. 
I might regret it later, but...

On April 1st I entered the lottery for the McKenzie River Trail Run - #MRTR 50K. It is not a large race, but it's popular for the area, so race organizers have capped it in order for the atmosphere remain outstanding. If you have already finished it 5 times, you are given an automatic entry. For new readers here- I have yet to run past 26.2 miles/42k.

I won some Skittles, and have been a bad, BAD blogger.

I should have posted this a while ago, but I have been a bad, BAD blogger.
My apologies to anyone who might have been itching for their latest edition of my little updates here. Heh.

Aside from the normal level of craziness, the weather has been good and the kids are now on spring break, so we have been doing lots and lots of outdoor activities. I am fresh out of good excuses, so here's my attempt at cramming a few weeks into one sensible (short) read.

1) I won a race.

Re-Thinking Running, Gratitude and 2 Winners :)

It's such a blessing to be running right now!

In March of last year, I was thumping  myself on the head and wondering when I might be able to run again. I had signed up for a relay (I am signed up for the same one this year!), but was unable to run due to domino injuries in my left leg.  Little did I know it would be months before I would be running "right".

This spring, it feels like I have peeled a layer off. Another version of my running journey revealed.

The biggest joys are little things....

4 THINGS that put more #SPRING in running! [And a GIVEAWAY]

Animal print compression!
I must confess to a little obsession with animal print. What better to bring out the animal racing instinct than a pair of leopard print compression socks?

(Sorry I did not detail my shoes for the picture. Yes, that is real dirt. )

These socks won't be ignored.
