 “The Lady” has been running since 2005! Given that I planned to do it just once, I think celebrating Lucky 13 with a theme of Gratitude is appropriate. Specifically, I am grateful for the myriad new and wonderful people in my life, the rich and varied experiences you have orchestrated, the inimitable feeling of witnessing courage and daring in motion. All the stories, all thesmiles, sweaty hugs, warm blessings, great laughs…and just knowing you have created your own amazing and incalculable personal difference. What you will never truly appreciate, is the difference you have launched in others by your bold action.

So, 2017 is the Lucky 13 Lady Gratitude Journey. (Much like the vaunted Gratitude Journal, only more about running shoes than pencil lead!) I will send out a monthly Gratitude Index…I invite you to send me any Running and Being (thank you Dr. Sheehan) specific gratitude’s you would like to share. Let’s celebrate a brand new year and number 13 with the Canyon.

Running On…
