Tonight wasn't anything special, but in a way it was. I went for a run tonight. The rain had slacked off enough that I was able to get outside. I ran my usual route, through the neighborhood, down to the gym with an extra block thrown in to make sure I got at least 3 miles. I ended up with 3.25. Nice.
The thing is.. it was a Great run, and it was Great because of you.
If you're cooped up in the house because of the weather..
If you want to run but can't for whatever reason..
If you've just finished a 5K, 10K, Half or Full Marathon..
If you're training for your first walk or run event..
If you're sad and lonely..
If you're on top of the world..
If you're struggling..
If you can't kick those last few pounds..
If you're supporting your Spark Family..
If you're supporting me..
If you're in need of support..
If you've lost 2 lbs or 120...
If you're trying to live the healthy lifestyle, one day at a a time..
I took you with me this evening, so grateful for how you have buoyed me up lately and kept me on the positive side of things.
I listen to techno when I run, for the thump, the bass, the beat. Tonight, this song queued up and really made me think of you.
Ok, so it's not exactly deep on meaning when you listen to the lyrics, but there are a few gems.
Let's join hands, it ain't to late
Let's keep on focus and concentrate
Money can't buy you love that counts
It's only for real when your heart starts to bounce
Keep on concentrating and bouncing. We may slow down, we may need to catch our breath, we may even stumble, but we will not be stopped.
