More evidence that I am a runner came today.I escaped for a couple days with my
husband.While he was in meetings
learning how to better do his job, I had free time on my hands in Teton
Village! I could have booked a pedicure.We all know runners need pedicures! I could have shopped the shops or
ordered breakfast in and scheduled some other kind of pampering at the spa.I could have gone to Jackson Hole and spent
the day in those shops or stayed in my room to read a book. But I am a runner,
and so I ran three miles at 6300 feet!Here is the evidence.Those would
be Teton Peaks in the background.
I need to work on selfies.I forgot to smile!
It was a brisk morning and the elevation is a killer, but
here are some of the things I would have missed had I chosen a different
A glimpse of the Tetons in the fall. My early years were
spent in view of these mountains and I still get a feeling of “belonging” when
I see them.
Check out those ski runs!It won’t be long before they are covered in snow, the lifts are running,
and skiers are scattered about the mountain.Did I mention that I am also a skier?
Look at those fall colors!
Yes, I am a runner and I know it, not because I can run a
six minute mile – I can’t. It’s because I run.Whether I run because I am racing, staying sane, helping with a cross
country team, or killing time, it matters not.What matters is – I run.
