It's never Too Late

I was thinking about all of the good times I've had as a runner. I never liked to be called a jogger.I didn't jog, I ran. I've been to different cities to compete ,I've met Olympians,I've come in last,I've been injured. But I've always had a great time.

Over a period of a month,a friend and I ran a psuedo marathon. We decided that we didn't want to officially run one , so we broke ours into 4 parts. We would meet once a week ,where it was that we had stopped the last time. That was fun .

I've had,in my over 25 years of running----plantar fasciites,stress fractures ,illio tibular problems,blisters, black toe nails,nasty scraps from falling,sun burn,a couple of encounters with nasty dogs and the biggest insult( at the Marine Corps Marathon in DC . a young recruit said ,as I slogged by "You are looking good Sir") Those were good times.

Then today, as I was thinking about my history of running, I thought--I can run from one end of Israel to the other and east to west. That is so cool.

I better get my running shoes on and start training because It is never too late to do what you love and in a place that you love.See you at the starting line.

Don't quite know how this got to me but it was on the top line of my computer (not in email) But I really enjoyed it. I truly admire you.

Everything sounds so wonderful Leona. Venice will seem boring . I would want to move to Portownsend where the kids are living. All sounds great . Is there?
