Running and Smiling

I know I haven't blogged about running since my half marathon but it's not because I haven't been running.  I have been running and it's been good, in fact, the weather has been beautiful and even warm in the late afternoon.  It's just that I've been busy, busy, busy.  Oy Vey life has a way of getting in the way of blogging, but then that's okay with me.

Truth be told I've been on this kindness kick and it has just become an obsession...almost.  I am so focused on trying to spread kindness, in the hopes that others will pay if forward, that I forget to sit down and actually blog about running or working out.  I have a feeling y'all will forgive me.  After all this blog is about running and my life (and all that entails).   I am just so tired of all the negativity that seems to be out there, I just want to make another human smile, even if it's just for a moment.

"No act of kindness, no matter how ever wasted" -Aesop

(I Think YOU are beautiful and or handsome)

On to other news...

Running 3-4 times a week seems to be a good match for me, so that is what I have been doing.  I am also running for time instead of miles, as it feels less stressful.  I definitely need to get back to the gym for some lifting...and cross training.  How is everyone else doing? 

"Limitations only exist if you let them"

Godspeed...this comes from the Middle English expression "God spede (you)", a wish for success and fortune for one setting out on an enterprise, voyage, adventure, or travels. It may also mean good luck.
