    Be Your Own Great Resource


    Shirley came up to me tonight after running and said to me that the website I suggested in my blog was a great resource.  She then told a couple of her friends to go to the Nova site and prepare to be amazed.  To be ready to read some really great stuff.

    But I wonder if Shirley knows what a great resource she is. 

    I think I might have mentioned how wonderful it is to see her smile.  She has the kind of smile that lights up a room.  And I can only imagine how her patients feel when she walks into their hospital room.  I would be getting out of bed if Shirley smiled at me.

    But back to my earlier question … I wonder if she knows what a resource she is?

    I have the luxury of remembering the very first race I did with the Runner’s Den.  Way back when I first started to run after the surgery.  Esther used to do a race to raise money for Jason’s House.  I was so excited because it was my very first timed race.

    My Aunt Dianna and I started off together.  But she is a faster runner than I am, and as I always say, run your own race.  So we went our own separate ways at some point.

    And the last kilometre I met up with this lady who was clearly having a great time.  And I remember this wonderful lady encouraging her running partner.  Telling her that she was doing great.  That she could do it.

    And she continues to encourage runners in a special way, that only Shirley can.  Thank you!!

    A runner for almost two years, Terry recently had the mildly traumatic experience of trying to find a flattering pair of running pants (“Isn’t running about pushing personal boundaries and just getting out there and moving? Except when you don’t look in the least bit like Paula Radcliffe.”). But although she may have been a bit embarrassed by “helpful handsome guy” at the store, she keeps a great perspective through her running experiences. Pushing through a number of injuries early in her running career, she got right back to training for her next race. “The feeling of elation when I crossed the finish line is unimaginable,” says Terry. Sounds like she’s hooked for good!
