my favourite things





A few from today. I took the time to do some photography just for me. This was the morning I was to run my 42.2 km. But my body let me know about a month ago, that I would not be running. So, for over a month I really have done nothing for myself. I needed a few moments to reflect on really just how far I had actually run before I got hurt. 32 km and it felt great. I know that next 10 km I will get to run. I am hoping in October. 
I am renaming October...
 ROCKTOBER

I will run my marathon a few months later than I had hoped and planned for. I am going to rock my race in October.

 I LOVE love love the cherry blossoms, and the spring colours. It was a nice few minutes away. It goes to show you can find beauty a few minutes walk from your home. And find joy in other ways and places.

Thanks so much!

@Alyson I think that is great you will have a cherry blossom tree there! To watch it bloom and grow each year. SO beautiful.

And yes, I will rock the marathon. Just not on my timing! The diagnosis on my knee was IT band.
