thoughts on life while running

Today as I was out for my run I was thinking about a lot of things but one of them is a quote that has been carrying me for quite some time now and I don't know who said it I found it on pintrest and it has been lovely for me it is "No matter how slow you go, you are still lapping everyone on the couch." I love it! When I was out running earlier this morning I kept thinking about this quote over and over again. I am not certain why it sticks in my head but it does and I love it. Even when I am not running quickly I know that it is true that I am not racing anyone other than myself and I am always lapping everyone sitting on the couch.

Other thoughts while running today:
  • I have become a snob and no longer can stand running in cotton t-shirts
  • I have an amazing volunteer pool but it is a shallow and narrow pool - I need to intentionally work on increasing the size of my volunteer/adult leader pool
  • I hate going to the dmv
  • I love apple season and can't wait for honeycrisp season
  • I want to eat all things pumpkin right now
  • I need to catch up on some shutterfly books
  • I am excited fall is coming/here sort of
  • I have the world's best puppy
  • I miss living by my family and friends from all over the country


  1. I hear you about the running clothes. Super excited to run with you in a few weeks!

  2. I'm totally with you about being flung far and wide from family and friends. I miss you people (though I DID get to see Audit, Matt, and the kids a couple weekends ago. They're still awesome)!
