THE ARTISTIC LIFE – Living the creative life in everything we do

Run Like the Wind

Did I tell you that I signed up to run my first half marathon? Yep, in 9 days, I’ll be participating in the Virginia Beach Rock n Roll Half! With some weekends out of town lately, it’s been hard to find time for the long training runs, but last Saturday I was able to. Ran/walked over 12 miles on a hilly trail in the park. I just love trail running, in comparison to pounding the pavement on the road. In fact, here’s a little poem I wrote in my head while I was running:

The woods are whispering, “Run like the wind!”
My feet and my mind become free.
The willows sway,
The leaves listen.
“Here she comes!” they say.
My smile returns to me.
