I have really had an intense week. Today was no different. I got a 1.5 mile run done at sunset. I had intended to run farther but a call from my mom made me stop. I can’t think of a better reason to end my run early. It was good to catch up with her. I remember her running when I was a kid. I thought she was such a bada$$. She had great stories from her runs too. She had a couple of teenage boys sing “Dude Looks Like a Lady” at her as she ran by them. She got a good laugh out of it. She has always been a glass-half-full kind of person. We even have a family joke about her famous phrase, “we’re lucky!” because she really can find the silver lining to any dark cloud. She is one tough chick and I’m glad I’ve had her example in life for how to be a strong woman.
