The view from my porch.

“It’s important to know that at the end of the day it’s not the medals you remember. What you remember is the process — what you learn about yourself by challenging yourself, the experiences you share with other people, the honesty the training demands — those are things nobody can take away from you whether you finish twelfth or you’re an Olympic Champion.”

-Silken Laumann, Canadian Olympian

Can I get an AMEN! Silken REALLY nails it!

Saturday may be the best day for running this weekend, especially in Boston. According to the weather forecast I just looked at Boston may have a little snow Sunday and rain Monday on race day? Same thing here locally, Saturdays Garden Spot appears to be the best running day while Sundays Hero 5K may require a little heroism as it could be a 4.5 mile mud fest on the levee!

I hope to have some pictures of our local runnier in Boston to share nest week!

Whatever your weekend plans include, include some time for yourself, some exercise to enhance your health, and some time to let your loved one know they are important in your life!
