when i was given the green light to really go for it, running-wise, this spring, i set a pretty ambitious schedule for myself, race-wise. i figured if i was going to go for, then i should go for it.

so i did.

each week saw me grow stronger.
each run saw me grow stronger.
each race saw me grow stronger.

i had my last race of my "spring season" this past weekend. it marked the first time in three years i've raced back-to-back weekends.
 i wasn't sure how wise of a move it was, but this wasn't a race i would miss for anything.

i may not have been able to tap the sign on my way to the start line, but i did my best to play like a champion anyway.

and then i got to sit back and watch the sun rise over the stadium wall.

it was a fitting end to an amazing spring.

it was a fitting beginning to the coming summer, as i run forward with a little confidence and a lot of optimism.

stride on.

you capture

I like this notion of running with optimism. And that was a race not to miss - such a perfect day!
