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

Grand Canyon adventures
p.s. I commented on Larry's blog, and thought what I said would be a good closing for my own post. So here it is.
Now I wish we went double...have to go back, I guess:) 40th birthday? Why not? Running is fun. Apparently, I love running. Who would have thought? I really, really do love running. I miss it. I want to be back at it. It's soothing. It's refreshing. It's soul healing. It's meditative. It's adrenaline elevating and endorphin releasing. It's heart rate raising. It puts smile on my face. It works my muscles the best. It allows me to believe in myself. To feel confident. To reach high. To reach out. May be it is not my identity. But it is my passion. And I need it.
Good trip. Lots of processing. And still going on. I love trips like that. They remind me I am living, I am alive, and why. Between awesome nature trails and people who have soul deepness that matches the Grand Canyon - it is priceless.
