I have been thinking a lot lately about community and what that means to me. I started this whole running group to help myself find like-minded people to run with, and then we’d train together and have fun, then go get a beer. And that is what it was at first, but then turned into something else. Things I never expected. I became this organism of support, friendship, and camaraderie, and spilled into all these other groups and circles that just makes me all kinds of giddy. It’s not about the running anymore, it’s about the support, the structure to hold people up when they are going through something hard, or taking on a new challenge. It’s not about the people, it’s the people together holding each other up. I think that is pretty much the best thing ever. We need more of that.
Thanks you for your eyes, heart and those great legs of yours.
