Saturday musings

It's a beautiful, sunny Saturday morning and things have finally settled down a bit!  There must have been something going on in the cosmos recently, because I've read so many blogs the past two weeks where people have echoed the same feelings of craziness, chaos and feelings of being overwhelmed.  But today is a new day, and I feel like I can b r e a t h e ...


Since I haven't posted since Tuesday, I'm going to throw a bunch of seemingly unrelated topics together and call it a post :)

1.  My 2014 Yoga goal is off to a great start.  How is that? you may ask.  Well, wouldn't you know the heavens smiled upon me when I found out I won the 3 month Yoga giveaway from Little Green Running Shoes last week?!  So, even though I had been saying for the past 2 years I was going to get into a yoga practice, it apparently was not my time.  Now is the time, and just like all good things, I think the timing for this gift was perfect, seeing as how I needed some way of centering myself over the past 2 weeks.  Thanks so much to Jenna!

2.  January 1st I became part of the Girls Gone Sporty Ambassador program.  They apparently have different 'teams' and I'm on Team Rad.  I'm not really sure what this means, but I wanted to reach out to see if there are any other GGS Ambassadors out there who read my blog.

3.  What City Should You Actually Live in?  Have you taken this quiz that's been all over The Facebook and Twitter this week?  Please do and tell me your results!  I got Barcelona which just seems a million times perfect. I love Europe!  I have been to Madrid in Spain and loved it.  And in fact one of my favorite cities in the entire world was this little mountain village in Spain called Toledo.  The city is high up on a mountain so you have to take an escalator that they built into the rocks to get up there! I was there in 2005 so I whipped out my photo album (remember when people still printed out 'real' pictures) to share a few with you - enjoy the throwback:

4.  Meg's Miles.  I'm sure many of you runners out there are aware of this tragic story.  It's almost too sad to wrap your head around.  Meg was a mother of 3, out for her morning run in Richmond VA this past Monday, January 13th when she was struck and killed by a drunk driver.  A Facebook event has been set up so that runners everywhere can honor her memory.  So I, along with thousands of others, am headed for a run for a run today to remember #megsmiles.  Are you joining as well?

And with that I'm off.  I hope the Universe settles down a little bit for everyone in the coming week!
Your turn!
Are you running for #megsmiles today?
What is your favorite city in the world?
