All I want for Christmas
All I want for Christmas is to keep running. OK, maybe a gift certificate to my favourite running store but really, I just want to stay healthy so I can continue to run. If you think this sounds like I'm obsessed with running then you'd be right. But I make no apologies. I don't do drugs, drink only moderately and don't hang out in bars. I think one obsession with running is OK.
When I began running it was a pretty solitary affair. I ran alone, raced alone and didn't talk much about it. Since I began blogging...or blabbing...about my experience at Reggae Marathon in 2009, running has become more social. I've made friends from Vancouver, Boston, New York, Jamaica and Toronto. We keep in touch on Facebook. We all run and we talk about running of course. But we also talk about love, family, children, grand children, jobs, successess and challenges. We work hard to meet up in Negril, Jamaica on the first Saturday of December every year for Reggae Marathon.
I've changed mind...all Iwant for Christmas is to meet up with my friends again in 2016 in Negril.
Until next tme...
