I run now, and love it very much. I don't want to ever stop getting outside on my two feet and want to keep enjoying the scenery.

I want to run a marathon someday, too! One day at a time, I'll be closer to that goal.

Wasn't the rain nice today? I live in the high desert. The rain was just right. Not hard, but pleasant. emoticon

I came across the following quote while "googling around" the internet a few days ago and think it's message is so important that I want to share it with my friends!
Sheila

"All of life is a journey; which paths we take, what we look back on, and what we look forward to is up to us. We determine our destination, what kind of road we will take to get there, and how happy we are when we get there." From A Little Book of Happiness
