my wish list
This is my first time participating in Photo Friday at CHBM. Yes, I know I'm kind of cheating since I'm not using a photograph that I took -- but you'll understand why in a moment.
This week's topic is "my secret dream." Those hip mamas want to know what our ambitions are. You know, like aspiring to climb Mount Everest.
I actually have a lot for my wish list. Before this post, I actually have a list that I keep tucked away...to remind me of all the great things I want to accomplish. The long list includes learning to kayak, living abroad, and taking a culinary course. Oh yeah, you can toss in finishing my scrapbooks as well.
But topping that list is running a marathon. Hard to imagine, I know, considering I can barely run a 5K. And difficult to achieve since I run so inconsistently. But when I can hit the streets, running is so exhilarating. It sounds cliche - but my senses are heightened. It's great alone time. I hear my thoughts. I see things in my neighborhood I would never stop and give time to. I love that I can release all that pent up tension and anger - at least for a mile or two. And I can taste victory, no matter how big or small.
I think I've said it before (and while I may sound like a brown noser) but check out Makita's blog because honestly, that woman can wake up one day and decide, "Hey, let's run a 10K today for the heck of it!" Phenomenal!
So mark my words: one day, I will run a marathon!
today's good: I'm really at a lost for words today so I'll just holla TGIF! Maybe it's sheer exhaustion. Or maybe I'm just having a mediocre week. Whatever it is, I'm just so grateful we've hit the weekend!
today's bad: Have you seen what's hit the midwest just in time for Easter? This springtime snow stinks!
