Found this quote today. After the awesome 10 miler Todd and I pounded out (and occasionally slipped through in the muddy spots around Salem Lake) this morning, I find this sooooooo encouraging. Maybe you will too?

"Run because you want to be fast.  Run because you want to be skinny.  Run to find some quiet time.  Run to sweat.  Run to eat.  Run to hear your heart pound in your ears.  Run because you're a runner.  Run because you gotta keep the streak.  Run because you don't know why the hell you are running.  Run because you fought with your partner.  Run because your job is shitty.  Run because you got no money.  Run for the sunrise.  Run for a race.  Run because it's impossible.  Run because it's easy.  Run instead of doing the laundry.  Run instead of watching TV.  Run because no one else understands.  Run because the cool kids do it.  Run because you're tired of talking.  Run for numbers.  Run for feel.  Run to prove something.  Run because it f***ing hurts.  Or don't run.  If you got something better to do."  - Jeff Edmonds

Let me know when you want to go run - I'm always game. :) 

Two weeks until my first 1/2 marathon. BRING IT!
