It’s been ages since I’ve written – the pace of life and change of locations has left us often without internet or without the time to write – apologies for that! I’m writing today from the West Coast of Newfoundland – Rock Harbor to be exact. We’re here participating in and helping to facilitate a Young Adult Cancer Canada Retreat and are thrilled to be back in this beautiful province enjoying meaningful work and time with others.
Retreats usually mean intense weekends full of emotional releases and beautiful moments with new friends, so running often helps me to stay in balance with how I’m feeling in the midst of it all. This morning I woke up expecting rain but instead saw a gray threatening sky and decided to chance it. I was surprised to find that I felt rested upon walking out the hotel doors and was hit with a warm gust of wind. Heading out with the wind pushing me backwards with every step, I hit the pavement, reflecting upon my last run along the coast in Morocco. This time, it was a very different kind of run, but an equally beautiful and meaningful run. I love that about running – all you need is a pair of shoes and you can explore new cities, streets, and the great outdoors.
So exploring I went, wishing I had my camera because it was so breathtaking! But I enjoyed the exploration run to the fullest and went back for a walk later during free time with some survivors and my husband.
Beautiful road to run!
I think I got in about 5 miles before breakfast and really enjoyed the morning movement! Our free time for the day is almost over so I’m off to grab a (hopefully healthy?!) snack and get ready for our pre-dinner discussion! I hope this post finds you running, spinning, eating, jumping, and living well! Until next time,
