The gift of music! (a total surprise for me!)

August 25, 2015

It always seems I do my best thinking on my bike and today was no different. I thought I would switch it up and play my “race list” on this ride. (Don’t worry I only put one ear bud in)

I have not run or raced in almost 2 years now and I do really miss it. A knee injury moved me into cycling which I am every so grateful for. The last two years have been me attending races with my family and being the photographer which is sometimes a little sad for me.

Listening to my “race list” really brought back memories of my running and racing days and at first I was really sad listening to these songs but then I really started to “listen”. These are really good songs! Really motivational!

My mood started to lift and I was reminded to look for the gift. I am still healthy and now cycling. I was able to volunteer at a race this past weekend as the cyclist who “sweeps” the trail during the race. I have made some really good friends through cycling.

So today’s gift was subtle but powerful and I am in gratitude right now!

So I thought I would share my race list. My motivation during races and also for life and cycling! Have an angel filled day folks!
