HATE Running, LOVE Many Other Things

Meet the running shoes. For a reason that is still unknown, Velvet agreed to run the Boulder Boulder with her friend Diana. Velvet hates to run. She thought buying the right shoes, might make her go faster or make her like running. So, she spent $105 (twice as much as she's ever spent on shoes she likes) on this pair of shoes that did not make her like running. Velvet hates spending money. To make it worse, Velvet is training with Joy, the caucasian FloJo. It's not fun, folks! Velvet considered blogging her journey to the Boulder Boulder, but decided it wasn't good to be so negative.

I do have to say that I was proud of myself for running 5 miles last weekend. This weekend I will run 6. The Boulder Boulder is a 10K. If I don't have a better body when it's all done, I will really be disappointed!!!

So, now that that's out of the way ...

Heidi blogged about things her family loves and asked what we love. Here it goes...

I love laughter -- from anyone, but especially my kids. I love to laugh!

I love to play good volleyball. I love my morning quiet time. I love rhythm in my life. I finally have a good one. I love when our family visits; summer fire pits with our neighbors; vacations; meaningful talks, and serving people. I love my family and seeing old friends. I love my husband. I love the view of the foothills from our neighborhood. It frequently reminds me of God's splendor when I'm driving around, dropping the kids off, grocery shopping, picking up Starbucks, or RUNNING ;)
