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

Karma & Kindness Post #9

This Karma & Kindness post is dedicated to my teacher friend, Andy!

Thirsty?  So are my friends, Andy & Kate, who are training for their first marathon.  That's what a 20-mile run will do to ya!  But, even after running 20 miles, they still aren't as thirsty as the friendly people of Western Kenya who lack clean water.

Please click here to join me in supporting Andy & Kate in this worthy cause.  
Good luck to both of you and your awesome training group!

Good Mornings!

I don't really consider myself a morning person, but I love running early in the morning.  The weather is more predictable.  I run while the rest of my family is still sleeping, so no family time is lost.  It's generally very peaceful, and I get to experience some beautiful sunrises.  Plus, my day gets extended by a few hours.  I get so much done before most people have even finished their coffee!

I became an early morning runner about 9 years ago.  
I hope to continue for many, many more!

The Great Reno Balloon Race -- one of my favorite Reno events!  
No better way to experience it than by making it part of a long run!
