It's been so much more than that!
The Streak reminded me of the importance of a few things in my world.
Banff is Beautiful. How lucky am I to be living and running in this place?
Nature Rules: I saw cougar prints, an owl, herds of elk, ravens, coyote prints, moose prints and shy deer. One day, a chickadee landed on my hand. I ran through wind, blizzards, snow, cold and sunshine. It was Awesome.
Everyday, nature changes. The same places look different throughout different times of the day.
Winter is incredibly beautiful.
Getting outside is even more important in winter. Just go. Don't wait for the weather.
I really love to run. Consistency is crucial to your success with anything you do. Consistency is key to my running.
I'm stronger than I thought.
Ice is beautiful.
It's important for me to connect with Mother Nature on a daily basis.
I really like to stop and enjoy the view. A lot.
I'm definitely solar-powered. I never, ever want to miss getting outside on a clear, sunny day.
You can have an entire conversation with a raven. If you're lucky, they will talk back.
I love having the Sulphur Mountain Trail out my backdoor! This trail rocks in winter.
Getting outside makes you feel happy and healthy.
I need both solitude and sociability. Because I tend to prefer solitude, interaction with like-minded folks is crucial and fun!
