Littleton - Take 2

I went to Littleton this past weekend to spend some time with my wonderful family.  Unfortunately, I had to miss the last race in the race series that I was co-director for (eek), but Scott stepped up to the plate (even with a sore Achilles), and the race was a huge success.

Most of my trip was spent playing games, spending time with family, and eating food...
Eggs Benny at The Breakfast King
Homemade salad
Beef nachos from Merle's
but I also had a chance to get outside and enjoy the place where I did my first run back in July 2009.  
The pond that I ran my first lap around
Of course, the pond was different that summer, and as I ran around it, I couldn't help but reflect on the changes that I have experienced in the past year and a half...the ways that I am different, too.  Since this is a public blog, I won't go into all the details on this one, but I will say that running has been a constant in my life since 2009, and I am so glad that it has.  Whether I am training for a race or just getting outside and breathing in fresh air and enjoying the sights and sounds and life around me, I am thankful for the sport.
