Smiling

I am smiling because I can.

If I don't laugh, I cry.

I choose to laugh.
I am thinking about running.

I spent a lot of time running last year.

I went through 6 pairs of running shoes.

That is a lot of running.

I am smiling because I remember my last race.

I am smiling because I remember how proud I felt when my husband finished the St. George Marathon.
I am smiling because I am still so, so proud of him.

I am smiling because some day, somewhere, somehow, I, too, will finish the St. George Marathon.

I am smiling because I don't have to do it today.
I am smiling because my uncle ran my favorite half marathon on Saturday and thought of me.
If I had been able to run, it would have been my fourth year in a row.
I sitll miss running.

I miss exercise. Period.

I am still smiling because I can.
