I watched this video this morning. Go watch it now, then come back…….. well wasn’t it the most beautiful thing? It mad me so sad to watch it, why? Aside from my fear of getting eaten by bears I know I will probably never experience this and I would really like to. I am by no stretch of the imagination an outdoor person, in fact outdoors hates me, you should see the havoc bugs do on me. But this is not a trip one can take by themselves and actually I wouldn’t want to even if I could. I can’t imagine ever having knowing someone who would go and do this with me, to see a sky with just stars no lights hiding most of what’s up there. We all have the same sky but most will never see that beauty.
Maybe I should start a bucket list, I used to think I had no dreams of things I wanted to do, mostly it would be, I guess, places I wanted to see but not so much, things I want to do. I am a coward by nature, afraid of just doing things, I’m a follow all the rules kind of person afraid of getting in trouble type gal. That comes from my wonder years.
On another note, I’ve started my Couch to 5k training…I’m a whole two days in! Thanks to a good pair of shoes and a wonderful sister the foot pain is at a minimum. The biggest obstacle to cardio is not sore legs or muscles or feet it’s lung training, building the capacity of your lungs….and not having a heart attack. I have done this program a lot…but just the first week over and over again. This time I need to increase as required I’m actually going to try a 5K in August. Running has been something I’ve wanted to do since I had my first child…no seriously. After I gave birth my legs just longed to run, not run away. I don’t know why. I will try. Did I mention it’s the Color Run? If you don’t know what a color run is go to this link, if you are going to run for the first time this would be the thing to do. Excited.Sad For the Wrong Reason
