Every morning in Africa, an antelope wakes up. It knows it must outrun the fastest lion, or it will be killed. Every morning in Africa, a lion wakes up. It knows it must outrun the slowest antelope, or it will starve. It doesn't matter whether you're the lion or an antelope -- when the sun comes up, you'd better be running. -African proverb

I'm Dreaming of an Endless Summer

Summer is winding down ... Not only is school about to start again, but you can feel the change in the weather and season.  Long sleeves and headlamps are a necessity again.  I usually look forward to the start of a new season or other new beginning; I like to make new goals and schedules.  But it's different this time around.  I've had such a fun summer, especially in regards to running -- I just don't want it to end!

Reflecting back over the summer, I feel like I have accomplished a lot.  I've made some great new running friends, logged more miles than usual, read some inspirational running books, covered various parts of the Tahoe Rim Trail, started this blog, volunteered at some races, and feel really good!  Don't pinch me -- let the dreams continue!

  1. Juls, I feel the same way! Don't let summer end, but I realize as the sun begins to rise later and later and set earlier and earlier that the end is near. Well, the good news it is time to put the tired summer running gear away and go shopping and get some new winter running gear! I love that running is a year round sport!
