March Madness - Day 3

Laugh until your cheeks hurt!

(Hey....get your mind out the gutter. Keep it clean 😜)

Many people look at me and see a super serious person. I tend to be straight-forward and to the point. I do smile at times. I actually love to smile. A smile can brighten someone's day. So why not smile?!

The catch is transitioning that smile into laughter.

I know you've heard the old saying "Laughter is good for your soul."

Well, it's not just a cliche. It's a fact!

Who do you surround yourself with that allows you to release tension, let go, shred hurts and pain, let your hair down, and just be?

That's probably the same person, or group of people, who brings a smile to your face. Makes you laugh. Makes your side ache with pain. Makes your cheeks hurt.

If you don't have at least one of those people in your life, go out and find them. Pray that such a person be sent your way. Begin to be that person for someone else.

Life has it's ups and downs. Be sure to keep laughter in the midst of everything in order to control just how low your downs take you.

Surround yourself with laughter.
          It will give you hope.
               It will give you energy.
                    It can make you feel on top of the world.

What will you do today to make someone laugh until their cheeks hurt?

As I spent some time reflecting on 2018, I specifically took time to reflect on my running journey.

It was such an amazing year. The highlights can be found on my running blog. In a nutshell, there were ups and downs. There were achievements and setbacks. But through it all, there was so many life-transforming moments. One specific date of reflection was October 30. It was a day of wounding, both physically and figuratively.

I had an evening event at work so I decided to start the day with a run. You know, I wanted to get my blood pumping early. The problem was that I waited late in the morning to start, so I decided to do a quick out and back 2-mile run. As I was nearing my finish, I was running at a pretty decent spe…
