The purple ones are mine.
To make sure that my day in the mud was not a one hit wonder, I am keeping my groove alive. It has not been easy but it has been worth every minute and sacrifice.
These past two months I ran a half marathon and finished a sprint Triathalon. They were both great experiences. I wish they weren't over.
After our half marathon.
To commemorate my groove, I am running in the Dirty Dash again, here in Utah on September 22. An anniversary of sorts. That experience is what started it all. It is near and dear to my heart. Hard to believe mud has meaning to me, but it does. It won't be the same without my best friend there too, but she gave me the strength in the first place, and I am thankful for that.
A number of you have mentioned that you are going to run or want to run. Woo Hoo! Sign up. Get involved. You will love what it does for you. We can meet and say hello. You don't have to have any experience. You don't have to be a runner. Just Do It! Do it because it is out of character for you. Do it because you feel like a challenge. Do it because you want to have fun and find yourself.
I am running in the 8:40 wave, but will be there most of the day because our kids have asked if they can run in the kids "piglet plunge".
I keep having this thought that even though we don't know one another in real life, if you are running the Dirty Dash, we should bond, and have something that ties us together. So...
I have a little something for you. It isn't big or fancy, but we can all wear it on that day and know that we are all fighting the same fight, together. Don't worry, it isn't embarrassing. It is actually really cool.
This offer also stands for any one of you. Anyone who is trying to find their groove, missing their groove, or hopes to find their groove again one day. It doesn't matter how you are doing it, or what you are doing to find it, we are all fighting this fight together and we can all support one another.
This offer stands for each and every one of you. So, shoot me an email with your address and I will send you a little something. Even if you just read Family Volley and don't care about your groove. I would love to send you something also. A token of thanks. A little appreciation for following along and supporting.
Email away. I can't wait to send a little "happy" your way. (I will be so sad to not hear from you.)
