A Rainy Day Inspiration
The rain is bringing me down. It’s cold too. I’m wearing a sweater today. I jokingly tell people that I run on sunshine, and it’s true. So how I do get through on these rainy, cold weeks? Besides hot coffee, pumpkin spice lattes, and Amino Energy drinks; an inspirational story perks me up.
I was scrolling through my Facebook feed, and I found her. I found Katie. The girl that lived up the street and played Barbie’s with my younger sister. Katie’s not the young, childhood friend I remember. She’s a strong confident woman running a marathon. I clicked on the link that took me to Katie’s blog– Hobo Mom. I read about her humble appreciation of everyone who helped her get to the finish line. I love how running makes a wonderful analogy to life, and if anyone makes that point any stronger, it’s Katie. Did I mention she’s a single mom and mompreneur.
So, I encourage you to read Katie’s blog. She’ll make you cry, laugh and laugh some more. It’s the perfect pick-me-up on this rainy, cold week. I don’t know when the sun will come back out, but I do know you might get a smile on your face and some extra running motivation after reading Hobo Mom.
