Day 44 of OUR 365 Day Odyssey

So I was reading Erica’s blog I Run Because…I Can this morning, I’ve got running on my mind and Erica has this quote on her blog that I just love:

Every morning in Africa, a gazelle wakes up.
It knows it must outrun the fastest lion or it will be killed.
Every morning in Africa, a lion wakes up.
It knows it must run faster than the slowest gazelle, or it will starve.
It doesn’t matter whether you’re a lion or gazelle – when the sun comes up, you’d better be running.” ~Anonymous
While I was reading Erica’s blog I saw an image that I liked so I clicked on it.

And this took me to another blog Long Legs on the Loose where Katye is presenting us with a very special challenge this year “1010 in 2010”.  Yes, that’s right, run 1010 miles in the 2010. What do you think runners?

For me – Zumba was GREAT today!  I enjoy it more every week.  60 minutes of sweating, dancing, and smiling (and a little “whooping” because as I move through the workout that feeling of pure joy and hard work just needs to be expressed).
