How is everybody doing? I know so many of you raced these last 2 weeks. I'd love to hear about them!
In the mean time, just wanted to share these people/words/music/images that make my heart swell:
1) This quote by Jeanette LeBlanc always dares me to dream bigger and erases all fears for me.
Go now, and live."
- Jeanette Leblanc
2) Another Reason Why You Can Never Judge a Book By Its Cover. Meet Jonathan and Charlotte, two friends, an unlikely pair to be performing together, but they've got this dream.
You need to go to THIS LINK to watch them go after their dream.
Jonathan and Charlotte remind me of runners who don't fit the stereotype of what a runner should look like. You know what I'm talking about. Instead of slender muscle-packed bodies, there are runners in all shapes and sizes who will defy your initial judgement. Just because a runner is a little bit on the heavy side doesn't mean he/she is slow.
3) Ragnar Relay Washington DC (and other Ragnar Relay Races!). Helping The Hubs organize a team for this year made me nostalgic for my Ragnar experience. It's the song and the images in this vid that make my heart ooze with so much love for running and running with friends.
4) Hood To Coast, The Movie! I signed up for Ragnar DC AFTER watching Hood To Coast, the movie. Goosebumps!
What motivates you this week and makes your heart swell? Please share! Have you seen Hood To Coast, The Movie? Have you done a relay race?
