I genuinely did not want to write about the Covid-19 epidemic. Quite honestly, I am tired of hearing about it. I have scaled down what I watch on the news, but not completely stopped because I need to stay up to date with the realities we are facing. It is a scary time.

Once I discovered my love for trail running, I started watching movies, YouTube videos, and documentaries on ultra running.

I will never run at the same level these expert runners; but knowing this does not change my excitement as I watch them. I learn valuable lessons from each of these movies. And, even though they are focused on the sport of ultra marathons, they provide life lessons for any situation.

One Happy Friday
During this 2020 Covid-19 quarantine, I have happily spent time writing. I have also enjoyed visiting other blogs and reading the journeys others have shared. I found this blogger, Why Girls are Weird, and she had a post titled Happy Friday and she encouraged us to follow her lead and write 10 things we are happy for from this last week. Although I don’t usually act on something like this, I feel there is so much negative vibes in the air I figure this is a positive addition to my Friday morning. So here it goes:
1- Being home during the day with my kiddos.
2- Teaching my daughter to sew.
3- Giving my son a haircut (oh, my poor boy!)
4- Cooking dinner without the pressure of time.
5- Having quiet time to write.
6- Playing board games with the kiddos
7- Sleeping in (even an hour is bliss!)
8- Being able to run (while following social distancing.)
9- Daily hugs from my husband (reminds me how loved I am!)
10. Having the essential to live comfortably during this quarantine.
I encourage you to write your list down. Also, please comment and share with me a few things you are happy for this Friday! Lets keep Happy Friday alive!
It’s Not Over, It’s Just On Hold.

A Journey Worth Taking
Here is the thing – I am not a writer. I have a lot to say, and even though my heart is poetic my hand is prosaic.
