Inspiration.

Last night's 'Beauty Mark Night' was absolutely amazing. It was so inspirational, though-provoking, and moving for me, and I believe, everyone who attended. If you haven't heard of Diane Isreal's movie 'Beauty Mark', you must check it out. Diane and our SkirtSports rep, Maggi traveled down from Boulder to show the movie and speak to 70+ women that are affiliated with the store in some way or another. I think the film spoke to each and every person in a slightly different way...and it really touched my heart as I looked around at everyone's eyes as they watched. Hearing Diane speak was so incredibly motivating...and I could instantly feel my shoulders drop, releasing the pressures.

Thanks to my friends and family who helped pull this event together. I couldn't have done it without your support and presence. I am sad that I didn't take any photos...just couldn't make it happen:(.

After a wonderful night, we all were back at the store less than 12 hours later for our Sunday group long run. I took some photos of everyone, just before heading out...you can see it took a little bit to get the photo opp ready:).

A very tough, but wonderful route this morning. Started at the store headed north on the trail, headed up the Sinton Trail for a lovely 3 mile uphill, a left at 30th street up to the Mesa Overlook, down through Beetleman (sp?), and back to the store. A windy, but gorgeous 11.5 miles. Haven't gone that long in a while...and my legs are letting me know already today:). Love being with the girls...so thankful they are in my life.

The pic below is of my awesome LuLuLemon poster I have on my fridge. It has very inspirational statements on it, and after last night I am vowing to take a good long look at it everyday, with the intent of taking from it whatever I need to hear for the day.
