loving such glimpses..xox

(& also! i've been having trouble leaving comments on some blogs. i was told, for my own, to go to "settings"-"comments"-"comment form placement" & then change to "pop-up window" & that's seemed to help with people being more free to comment here. hope that helps!)

i guess i'll just be strong then

i ran my first race this weekend. a 10K. the preparation for it has been both difficult & invigorating. i love to run outside. especially in the early morning. the world here is then filled with bunnies + birds + pregnant quiet + starry skies turning sometimes into bright pink cover. aNd also roads going up up up at various turns. one morning i realized that is just the deal. & it was time for me to trust that there was a gift in the terrain. & that this was like all of my life. both beautiful & difficult. & i would keep running. & i would be strong. & how this is like all our lives. (etsy added w/love xo**in it with you**ox, rachel
