Thanks to Laurie from Meditations in Motion, I discovered a link up started by blogger Heather Gerwing. The fourth Saturday of each month (for me a Tuesday), Heather invites other bloggers to share their “Four Somethings”: Something Loved, Something Read, Something Treasured, and Something Ahead. Sharing these four somethings is a great way to recap your month and highlight what stood out to you. If you are a blogger, you may post your Four Somethings too!
1. Something Loved.
I try not to be political on this blog. But what I love that that we’ve broken the glass ceiling and have a FEMALE vice-president.
And the wife of the new President is also a runner.
Are you excited about having Kamala as the new VP? Did you know Jill was a runner?
2. Something Read.
I borrowed this from a co-worker and I was anxious to read it since A Man Called Ove is one of my favorite books.
It is about a bank robbery gone wrong, a hostage situation, an apartment-viewing, relationships, parenthood, friendship, forgiveness… I could go on and on.
As with all his books, it was humorous and touching at the same time. I might have shed a tear or two at the end.
Have you read this or Backman’s other novels?
3. Something Treasured.
My Running Friends
Most (or maybe all) are not training for long races like I am. Yet they offer to run with me. They show up on Saturdays even if they not running. They support me (even if they think I’m crazy.)
I got the hiking bug and they eagerly joined me.
Do you have people that you have treasured during this pandemic?
4. Something Ahead.
A visit to NYC and a real race. I am using my free hotel points and cross my fingers that it will be safe to do this.
NYC is always a magical place around the holidays. Pics below are from 2019.
and since it is Friday…
5. Something Learned
Yes, Seize the Day because life is indeed short. The Pandemic has shown us that. Be Safe (wear that mask if you are indoors or closer than 6ft outdoors!!) but don’t overthink things and miss opportunities. Don’t procrastinate. Get out there.
Has the Pandemic made you less spontaneous?
It’s Friday so I’m also linking up with Fairytales and Fitness for the Friday Five linkup! Join in! Don’t forget to link back to your hostess and visit some other bloggers.
Happy Running! What are your somethings? Share at least ONE.
