Cherry on Top please...

Something fun...Sherry from Life, from my perspective has given me the

How fun!

Here are the rules:

#1. Answer this question: If you had the chance to go back and change one thing in your life, would you and what would it be?

#2. The second thing you have to do is, pick 6 people and give them this award. You then have to inform the person that they have gotten this award.

#3. The third and final thing is, thank the person who gave you the award.

Wow...kind of hard first question I say. While I would love to believe that I haven't made any mistakes in my life, I will be the first to admit that I've made more than my fair share. And while there are 3 that instantly pop off the top of my head, I'm not sure I would ever actually change any of them because they have made me the strong, independent person that I am today. I guess forgiving my dad would be up there, but I still haven't found the inner strength to do that. I do think about it a lot when I run...but I think running this marathon that I've signed up for may actually be easier than that. :/

Now...to award 6 people with this stellar award...drumroll please...
Abbey from Destination unknown
Katie from Legally Fit
Nicki from Running Nicki
Molly from I'm a sleeper Baker
Christina from the Green Runner
Zoe from Run, Zoe, Run!

And last but not least, thank you to Sherry for the award (although I swear it's another sort of chain letter:) Hope everyone is having an amazing Tuesday!!

Aw, thanks for the blog love, Erika!

Running IS a fantastic time to think. And I totally agree that the mistakes in life are only there to make you stronger and appreciate the little things just that much more.

I really love reading your posts--they're engaging, light enough to pick up my day, but meaningful enough to make me think. It makes me smile when they pop up in my Google Reader :)

I think that is one of the reasons I've really fallen in love with running--it's a designated time each week where I can be alone in my head--or can zone out with the music and the road. I like the idea you're getting at, that running is a form of catharsis--something that is healthy for our mind and body.

Thanks for the award :)
