On Friends

Day Ten

Anything is possible when you have the right people there to support you.

Misty Copeland

Kicked ass at the race today. Dominated. BOOM.

Minus five degrees? Pfffft. Not a problem when you’ve got two of the best souls alive on planet Earth beside you. We three laughed, cried, ate, ran, cried some more – okay, actually I was the one crying but I do that lots, it’s how energies move through me – dreamed, shared fears, boasted in triumphs, encouraged, and had an altogether perfect 24-hours.

This race remains on our list of possible do-agains, despite the frigid temps. We love Wolf Creek’s juju vibe… good peeps, laid back, nice medals, a long sleeve T that I may never take off… yeah, a definite revisit possibility.

There’s a lot of talk about how awful things are in the world, how hateful people can be, how difficult life is… and there is truth in this. Life is hard. People are hurting. It’s been a dramatic couple of years for sure.

So many of us have struggled within the vibrations of this “new normal.” I am one, among many. I am thankful to have a Bestie who meets me where I am, in the midst of my journey, and walks beside me… reminding me of her love for me, our love for each other, and the amazing life we have yet to experience, explore, discover, create. Beyond words, she is good for me. Grounding. Kind. Honest. And gives super good hugs. That heal me. Yeah, a whole lot of gratitude in me for her.

Things are never quite as scary when you’ve got a best friend.

I’m finding that Love among friends is healing, refreshing, and a vital ingredient in creating the life I deserve… and so, of course, I’ve signed up for a few more races. Because I am a runner, a racer, an athlete, and am curious to know what this body can do… but also because I am a Bestie, a good friend, loved just as I am, celebrated wildly, and welcomed into relationship with two of the most authentic, comfortable-in-their-own-skin, hilarious souls I’ve ever met. And I get to call them Tribe.

A good day indeed. ❤
