Walker Run: Live for Today!

Also, I wanted to take a moment to pass along some information in case there is anyone who has not heard about it yet. There will be a Walker Run on April 9th, 2011. Please take a moment to read a little bit about the event, and plan on attending! If you cannot attend, prayer is still coveted by the Walker [and Pigg] families.

This fun run/walk has been put together by the Belmont University Physical Therapy class of 2003. The purpose of this event is to help support Sara and her family as the walk this difficult road, and to also continue to savor life!

Run New Routes

This past weekend was such a perfect day to run! The weather here in Nashville was amazing, and Ayns and I woke up early to go on an 8 mile run.  To switch things up a bit, we used the website Map My Run to find a new route to try. If you haven't used that site yet, I highly suggest it. It is filled with many routes for running, biking, etc., that people have already mapped out and given directions. It is a quick and easy way to find somewhere new to run without having to go track the distance yourself ahead of time. 

The particular route we chose had us passing by some lovely parts of Nashville, including Centennial Park, Vanderbilt, Belmont, and Music Row, and Lover's Circle, and down West End. It was a great start to the day, and as for the run itself... we felt great! It was my best feeling run yet! I love days like that, when you can just feel how great your body is taking to the long stretch of road.

Hope everyone is doing great, and if you're training also... let us hear about how it's going!
