When the sun is shining I can do anything; no mountain is too high, no trouble too difficult to overcome. – Wilma Rudolph

You can call me a runner!  At least you can after this week.  I had been on break too long and the description wouldn’t have been accurate.  All week, I ran.  I ran more than I had this winter.  I pulled on tights.  I laced on my sneaks.  I tied back my hair.  I ran mid-day.  I ran at night.  I ran inside. I ran on a treadmill.  I ran to music.  I ran in silence.  I ran uphill.  I ran downhill.  I huffed and puffed.  I sweat.  I set a goal.  I attained it.  I ran.  I’m a runner once again.

“If you run, you are a runner. It doesn’t matter how fast or how far. It doesn’t matter if today is your first day or if you’ve been running for twenty years. There is no test to pass, no license to earn, no membership card to get. You just run.”

  1. Like you, I am a runner. It took a while for me to identify myself with that name. To feel like I deserved to wear it. I feel similar with writing. If I do it often enough, I can call myself a writer.
    I look forward to reading more of your writing, and hopefully more about your running – to passions that help us reflect a lot on the world around us!

  2. I love your Wilma Rudolph quote and your post, too. I’ve been working on my stamina for running. I’m at the gym most moorings at 5:00 a.m. but I do miss a day here and there. Your post is truly encouraging! It reminds me that I, too, am a runner! Thanks for sharing!

  3. Welcome to the Slice of Life Challenge! Sounds like you had a great week – lacing up your shoes and getting back into running. You have written the perfect metaphor for taking on the writing challenge, too – “I set a goal. I attained it.” Thanks for sharing!
