Today i got to run in the misty rain to the beach and back. It was a stretch, my lungs and muscles balking for sure. I'm always amazed how quickly my mind says i can't do this, then i hear my running buddy Tess who's worlds away in New Zealand talking in my head, telling me to get my ass up the hill, that i can walk at the top if i need to. You made me laugh Tess and you weren't even here. Thanks girl for being you and for teaching me how to run. Miss you like crazy.
