I am a girl who loves mountains, changing seasons, running, true backpacking, strong coffee, and knitting with high quality yarn.
When something bad happens, you have three choices: let it define you, let it destroy you, or let it strengthen you.
The purpose of life is to discover and develop your gift. The meaning of life comes from sharing your gift with others. - David Viscott

On a lighter note, returning to the first purpose of this journal, I had a nice run today. I got up at 4 am and it was dark and windy, so I crawled on a couch in my running clothes and dosed off. But as the day went on, the sun came out, and after work I went to my favorite park. I didn’t quite have the spring in my steps, but my aches were at bay, and I went for all the hills I was avoiding in the last couple of weeks. I ran and thought of all of you, guys. How lucky I am to have met you. How lucky I am to have met my husband and give birth to two healthy boys. To have food on a table and a roof over head. To have dreams. And to have a wish to work towards making them come true.
