a monday morning challenge

Do one thing every day that scares you.

running isn't his forte, but that didn't stop him for joining the cross country team. yesterday was his first meet. despite the hills, the heat and never being on this particular trail, this boy of 12 finished his two miler in 18 minutes. he wasn't too impressed with his time considering the first kid finished in 10 minutes. i reminded him. slow and steady wins the race. pace yourself. it's only the beginning.

most of life feels like a race. are we running away from something or towards something. or both?

just something i'm wondering. and in keeping with the roosevelt quote, today i plan to do something that scares me. namely surprise a bunch of 7th grade boys for lunch. 
the team with their coach

here's to enjoying the run.
