  3. Very well said! (and yes, I realize that is exactly what the person above me said as well, but it's true!). I love the quote you used, too. I think that people who take a positive outlook on things and are typically glass half full are very inspirational people to be around, because of their spirit. The ones that are always finding something to be negative about are the draining ones.

    1. I am trying very hard to be positive right now in this heat! I don't always succeed. LOL. Getting frustrated or down is part of it. But, I agree with you. If that's ALL you can talk about, it gets old. I'd rather hear what you are going to do to change the situation.

    1. There is no way I could find such a concentration of women runners (especially older ones) in my own world like I have in the blogging community.
