Day 34 – Seek out the positive

On March 7th I did my first trail race, a 30k with Aravaipa Running down in Arizona. The race tangled through the mountains of White Tank Regional Park. I had no idea what I was getting myself into but I knew I was in for a lot of fun.

Looking back on the race I cannot help but smile. I have moments of feeling guilty, COVID-19 was on our radar but I did not understand the scope of severity; at that point I’m not sure many of us did.

As I wrote about my race before I am still celebrating the good. This was a reminder that it is important to seek out the positive in our lives when everything else might seem so negative. Celebrate the wins. Seek out the positive. Find joy. Make yourself smile.

Thinking back to my first trail race, the win, the people, the whole experience, brings me joy. Special thanks to Hayley Pollack who made this happen.
