AMAZING gifts from above

Sunny, clear, and upper 50’s to start and by the time I finished my long run, it was well into the 60’s. We have been blessed with wonderful training weather this year. I can’t help but hope that these training conditions are nothing short than a gift from above.

On the way to the boardwalk this morning I had my iPhone playing from iTunes on shuffle. I find it interesting that somehow, the iPhone knows exactly what song to play you at exactly the right moment. Perhaps another gift from above.

The song below is how I began my day. The lyrics are beautiful. It was a fitting song to empower me but also calm me and get me ready to take on the battle ahead. Today’s battle was 8.5 miles worth. And once I began, it really wasn’t much of a battle at all. As you will read below, it is AMAZING all that we can do.

Today’s Favorite Song:
It’s Amazing – Jem

Do it now, you know who you are
You feel it in your heart
And you’re burning and wishing

At first, wait, won’t get it on a plate
You’re gonna have to work for it
Harder and harder

And I know ‘cause I’ve been there before
Knocking on the doors with rejection
And you’ll see ‘cause if it’s meant to be
Nothing can compare to deserving your dream

It’s amazing, it’s amazing
All that you can do
It’s amazing, makes my heart sing
Now it’s up to you

Patience, now frustrations in the air
And people who don’t care
Well, it’s gonna get you down

And you’ll fall, yes you will hit a wall
But get back on your feet
And you’ll be stronger and smarter
