I can't tell you the number of times I've thought, okay, I'm really gonna sit down and write now. the more time passes, the harder it gets.
I turned 32. since then, I've eaten a lot of cookies, won a softball game, finished working at the opera (for a few weeks), lounged around sauvie island, hung out with my horse, and spent several sunny afternoons having wine and snacks in a friend's backyard. I've wandered portland with the one I love. I've examined my life. I've had a lot of coffee.
today I ran a race up at mt. hood that involved mud, rocks, dirt, and several tricky water crossings. I waded through hip deep sludge. I ran through the trees. I'm covered in scrapes and bruises. "this is not a trail race," they said. "there is no trail." my cross-country race flats finally came to good use. I had forgotten how much I love it, flying through the woods like a deer.
it's summer now. summer: bike rides and ice cream, sangria, berries from the garden, road trips, flip flops, sunglasses. summer, love of my life.
