Words for Wednesday

"So.  Tell me.  Have you been using your foam hang your wash on?"
- Judith
Massage Therapist 

You are busted.

Some friendly advice on this Wednesday afternoon.

Do not neglect stretching and rolling your muscles.  You aren't doing yourself any favors AND it turns your sweet angelic massage therapist into a She-Devil with strength greater than Gerard Butler with his CG 12-pk abdominals and his army of 300 completely focused on every single trigger point you have making you laugh hysterically because you are too delirious to cry out for mercy as the pain shoots through your body.

10 Things I Learned on Last Night's Run

in no particular order

  • I need to invest in warmer tights.
  • Getting blasted by 16-17 mph wind gusts make you feel like running in cement.
  • It is possible to freeze your woohoo.
  • You can still sweat when it feels like it's 15 degrees.
  • Running in the freezing cold makes  you crush your tempo you can get warmer faster.
  • Or rather...Running in the freezing cold makes your running buddy drop the hammer, and in turn crushes your tempo goals.
  • I really did freeze my ass off.  I couldn't feel it for an hour.
  • I'm so glad I learned to launch snot rockets.
  • Your dog has to pee on every single leaf on his night time walk when all you want to do is get inside and get warm before your limbs begin to fall off.
  • Running in freezing temps with one of your besties makes it not so horrible, actually, it makes it pretty fantastic.

Thank you, Coach Lolo, for your carrot dangling, conversating and keeping me honest!

Words for Wednesday

On the way home from yoga this morning, I was witness to the most amazing sunrise.  In an instant I realized that I could not remember the last sunrise where I was completely present in the moment and had my eyes "open" to really "see" what was around me.    

And then I open up a email that contained a link to this post and I thought, "how serendipitous."

I don't know anything about the author or the site he writes for, but this post was too beautiful not to share.

"The spirit of sports kisses us on the forehead and our eyes open wide and we see. We have no footage of it, but the best of our lives are its proof, and celebration."

Beautiful words, David.  
Thank you!
