“Welcome, Christmas, bring your cheer. Cheer to all Whos far and near. Christmas Day is in our grasp, so long as we have hands to clasp. Christmas Day will always be just as long as we have we. Welcome Christmas while we stand, heart to heart, and hand in hand.”
- Dr. Seuss, How the Grinch Stole Christmas
Regardless of the holiday you celebrate this time of year, the focus revolves around spending time with friends and family and fostering a spirit of giving. So I wanted to take this opportunity to wish you and your loved ones a happy holiday full of light and warmth!
All the best,

“Decide today that you are a positive force to be reckoned with. Live life from a place of gratitude, power, and creativity. Give thanks for your many blessings. Make your life a daring adventure, and create something that represents the highest that is within you. Answer the call on your life, and make your move.”
This was just too good not to share. And many thanks to the Rather Be Running Facebook page folks for posting it there for me to find.

“Laws” and “rules” imposed on you
From days of old renown,
Are not intended for your “good”
But for your crushing down.
Then dare to rend the chains that bind
And to yourself be true.
Dare to liberate your mind,
From all things, old and new.”
- Ragnar Redbeard (he was a viking)
“Excellence is not a singular act, but a habit. You are what you repeatedly do.”

“To sweat is to pray, to make an offering of your innermost self. Sweat is holy water, prayer beads, pearls of liquid that release your past. Sweat is an ancient and universal form of self healing, whether done in the gym, the sauna, or the sweat lodge. The more you sweat, the more you pray. The more you pray, the closer you come to ecstasy.”
- Gabrielle Roth
