I went to work in a jacket and scarf. I walked home from work today with just a sweater on. I took the sweater off to walk the dogs. I went upstairs, and without giving it much thought, I put on shorts and a T-shirt. I got my tunes ready, iPod on, stepped outside … […]

Balance and Growth

I’ve been working more to notice and appreciate balance this week. Last week, when I ran the half marathon, I had a great run. I was strong. I was confident. I was fast. Afterwards … I was tired. It was tired in a good kind of way. Accomplished. But in the past few days after […]
