Determined Mom!

I AM A RUNNER because my runs have names. I do tempo runs and threshold runs and fartlek runs. I do long, slow runs and track workouts. My runs are defined, even if my abs are not.

I AM A RUNNER because my shoes are training equipment, not a fashion statement. The best shoe for me is the one that makes me a better runner. I choose the shoe that goes with my running mechanics, not my running outfit.

I AM A RUNNER because my runs have names. I do tempo runs and threshold runs and fartlek runs. I do long, slow runs and track workouts. My runs are defined, even if my abs are not.

I AM A RUNNER because my shoes are training equipment, not a fashion statement. The best shoe for me is the one that makes me a better runner. I choose the shoe that goes with my running mechanics, not my running outfit.

I AM A RUNNER because I don't have running outfits. I have technical shirts and shorts and socks. I have apparel that enhances the experience of running by allowing me to run comfortably. I can say "Coolmax" and "Gore-Tex" in the same sentence and know which does what.

I AM A RUNNER because I know what effort feels like, and I embrace it. I know when I'm pushing the limits of my comfort and why I'm doing it. I know that heavy breathing and an accelerated heart rate--things I once avoided--are necessary if I want to be a better runner.

I AM A RUNNER because I value and respect my body. It will whisper to me when I've done too much. And if I choose to listen to that whisper, my body won't have to scream in pain later on.

I AM A RUNNER because I am willing to lay it all on the line. I know that every finish line has the potential to lift my spirits to new highs or devastate me, yet I line up anyway.

I AM A RUNNER because I know that despite my best efforts, I will always want more from myself. I will always want to know my limits so that I can exceed them.

I AM A RUNNER because I run. Not because I run fast. Not because I run far.

I AM A RUNNER because I say I am. And no one can tell me I'm not.

Happy Birthday to You!!

Born October 23, you are ambitious and quite stubborn -- and it is the combination of any one of the first four traits, together with stubbornness, that is likely to see you achieve your goals and turn your dreams into reality. Some would say that you simply don't take no for an answer; another way to put it is that you will work tirelessly to uncover the opportunities that lay hidden within even those situations that seem to offer nothing good whatsoever. You will never use deception to make your way, and your word is your bond.

While you take things very seriously, you also have a rather wild sense of humor, and you can laugh at yourself and others with tremendous abandon. Others marvel at your ability to enjoy yourself when things are stressful, hectic or strenuous -- but this is all because of your bright and humorous outlook.

Today’s Scorpio Horoscope: Are you really willing to do what you said you'll do? Now's the time to be true to yourself!

You share a birthday with: Sanjay Gupta, surgeon and TV medical expert; Nancy Grace, lawyer and TV commentator; Weird Al Yankovic, musical parodist; Martin Luther King III, public speaker, son of the civil rights leader; Dwight Yoakam, singer; Michael Crichton, author and filmmaker.

Hope your day was wonderful!
