Four Somethings – November


January 2018 Share Foru Somethings #ShareFourSomethings

Thanks to Laurie from Meditations in Motion, I discovered a new link up started by blogger Heather Gerwing. The last Monday of each month, Heather invites other bloggers to share their “Four Somethings”: Something Loved, Something Said, Something Learned, Something Read. If you are a blogger, you may post your Four Somethings too!

So here are mine:

Something Loved.

NYC at Christmastime.  I know it’s only November, but the city starts buzzing after Halloween.

Something Said.

In a review of the movie A Star is Born (which I absolutely loved) –

“…life is about taking risks and some of the greatest rewards come from throwing away everything that feels safe.”

So obviously this can apply to life as well as running.

  • Does it mean that I should sign up for the 2019 NYC Marathon????

  • Does it mean that I should retire from my current job?

Something Learned.

I always learn something from every run and every race. The problem is remembering what you learned and applying it.

So what did I learn from my most recent runs and races?

I learned:

  • I can still PR at age 65.
  • I don’t need to put in a lot of miles to be successful in my races.
  • I missed racing on Thanksgiving Day.
  • Running in frigid temps is uncomfortable but doable.
  • Hills won’t kill you.
  • Walking up huge hills in a race will prevent injury.
  • Expensive races don’t mean better race experiences.

Something Read.

Image result for the leavers

The Leavers is about an undocumented mother who suddenly disappears and the young American-born son she leaves behind. Of course with our current immigrant situation, it seemed very timely.  I really enjoyed the story and its characters.

Happy Running! What are your FOUR somethings? Share at least ONE.
