The Wind Never Bothered Me Anyway

Another 3.5 miles is in the books! Today’s run was killer because of the wind. I didn’t realize how cold it was until it was literally blowing in my face at full force. Yikes! About 1 mile in and I was wishing I had gloves on; however, on the flip side, I’m not a fan of having gloves on because of hand sweating. It’s like a lose-lose situation.

Anyway, last night I was reading The Book of Joy and stumbled across the passage below, which I feel describes my challenge this year with raising awareness and funds for pediatric cancer. I hope you enjoy.

“We are most joyful when we focus on others, not on ourselves. In short, bringing joy to others is the fastest way to experience joy oneself. When we close our heart, we cannot be joyful. When we have the courage to live with an open heart, we are able to feel our pain and the pain of others, but we are also able to experience more joy. The bigger and warmer our heart, the stronger our sense of aliveness and resilience.”

I’m most joyful when I’m working to help others and that’s exactly what this mission is all about. Helping those fighting each and every day to find a cure and give them HOPE.

If you feel moved to donate, please do so by clicking the links found on my blog. Or, if you are interested in running, let me know. All abilities and ages are welcome.

Fighting Pediatric Cancer One Mile At A Time,
