A little respect for Mother Earth on her special day

While you're out running, riding, or climbing the Incline today, take a deep breath and inhale the sweet spring air. Pause for a moment. See this beautiful place we live. See it with your heart.

Happy Earth Day, Mom!

"Sometimes the moments that challenge us the most, define us." - Opening quote from the movie "Spirit of the Marathon" It's not really an Earth Day related quote but it is one that I replay in my head when ever I find myself in a difficult or challenging situation.
