May the road rise up to meet you. May the wind always be at your back.
May the sun shine warm upon your face, and rains fall soft upon your fields.
And until we meet again, May God hold you in the palm of His hand.

And I Ran

Part of my six week checkup was hearing the words I have been waiting to hear for about six months - that I could run again. I stopped the day we received Eli's Potter's diagnosis. I had only been lightly jogging during my pregnancy to that point and it was devastating to think that I had been jostling Eli in my belly without fluid. I have missed it each day since. Funny since I used to tell people that the only time I would run is from a fire! Now I run. I run to stay fit, I run for endorphins, I run to think. It makes me feel good inside and out, strong and in control. I think the feeling of putting one foot in front of the other and repeating. A simple instruction for living each day - put one foot in front of the other and repeat.

  1. Running is a fantastic way among other forms of exercise to feel good. Looking good is a bonus. I too run to help me through the pain of this path. Its good.
