Wistful Wednesday


{Wistful Wednesday}
~A weekly ritual. A single photo capturing a moment from the week. 
A simple, special, extraordinary memory that I want to freeze, savour and remember~

I went for a run last night after I got home from coaching my daughter's ball.  It was getting late, but I knew that if I didn't go immediately that it would never happen.  That couch is just too cozy.  
So I did it and it may seem silly to you and this may be something you can do in your sleep, but I ran 3 kms without stopping. I usually throw in the towel after 1 km, walking the rest, citing extreme boredom. 
My mind game is strong and I can talk myself out of anything, especially running.  
But tonight was a different story.  I talked myself into something.  I told myself that I could and then I turned my brain off and just ran and didn't think about how much farther and longer I had to go.  I focused on the fresh air, the beauty of nature and the grace that I get to be here, in this beautiful place, using my strong body.  
Baby steps, people, baby steps.


  1. I LOVE that you used your mind powers.....it's just gonna keep getting stronger!

  2. This is awesome! I'm going to try to channel your energy when I run my race this weekend. I'm so nervous!

  3. My couch is too cozy too! Good for you and what a breathtaking view!


Have a lovely day!
