Even though I explored other words
for that word of 2016,
I realized that all those other words
(compassion, present, mindful, create....)
lead to my being happy...
So, Happy it is!!!
As I began a bit of exploration into what it might mean to me to be truly happy,
I found this on the Live Life Happy website
words to embrace, for sure.
The day after the race I ran on December 31st,
I got the results of my run.
Now I did this run as a challenge
and to keep my running,
with no expectations...
but the results of my run
surprised even me...
By the way, when I signed in on race night,
the woman at the table questioned me "53?"
Was I supposed to remember my bib number??
So I blabbered my way through
and then after I realized,
that was my age!!!!
So there is my age
front and center!!
out of 1380 runners who finished this race,
I actually placed in the top half!!!
Out of 726 women running,
in the top half!!!
In my age category (50-59),
I placed in the top quarter!!!
and yet, another reason to just be happy!!!
