This spring has definitely brought a case of the blahs in more ways than one. This went right on through to my running which definitely took a turn from the highs I experienced last fall.  Between the injuries and general “meh” attitude, I wasn’t excited about much of anything to do with running.  Then the past couple weeks happened.  For the first time in quite a while, I felt that revival of excitement and happiness to lace up my running shoes.  I

It just felt right.

So, of course, it probably has helped that I spent the last two weeks traveling across the country running.  Last weekend, I captained Team Honeybadger at Reach the Beach and this weekend I’ve spent in Colorado with today running the Boulder, Boulder (run it if you can – you won’t be sorry!).  I didn’t put up any blockbuster PR times or anywhere close for that matter, but it just was fun.  Isn’t what it’s all about?:)

Maybe I’ll get to race reports for RTB, Boulder Boulder and Big Sur but for now, I’m just good.  It’s good to be back.  It’s good to feel like I’m ready to jump back into things and see what is ahead.  For now, it’s time to get ready to head back east.  Have I mentioned I love Colorado;)

    Great pictures! I wish I could run again. I stopped running since I got sick. I really miss moving my feet fast.
