Tales of the Sole
Wanted to start a new chapter as we approach fall. I have neglected writing my own blog entries for some time and honestly I have no legitimate reason for it other than I have grown tired of reading my own stuff. With that said I was trail running this weekend to avoid watching the pathetic Patriots game and was inspired to start putting some thoughts down on a weekly basis. Its not hard it is really just more about getting motivated to be motivated about life. Ok so now that I am motiovated what to say.....
This weekend I was definitely more or less stuck in a rut about getting myself in gear and get out the door to do something active. I pulled myself together both days and got in nothing less that 8 miles each day on my own and managed to get in a few "Huck Finn" hours of trapsing around the woods with my kiddos. Man do I miss being a kiddo!!
Courtney Marshall, A true ambassador to "ACTIVE LIVING!"
Come Monday once again I was still feeling like I could not find the motivation to get off my duff. Then the worse news anybody can get came over the wire... a local "Running Friend" has passed much too early in life. Ok that got my attention.. WHAT? Last week we had a great documentary and panel discussion about "Running the Rockpile". Courtney Marshall and his lovely wife, Beverly were a part of that presentation and he really stoked peoples interest in the event. Gosh I want to do it now and I dislike road running. That says a lot about Courtney's passion for running in general! I am hoping to have a moment of silence this coming weekend during our last event to acknowledge Courtney and his ZEST for life! Any of you that may have run with Courtney and/or just have been around him know how infectious his smile was and how he could light up a room! I hope that I am as active as he has been into the golden years of life.... Cheers Courtney! See you in the woods!
