I was watching Alice in Wonderland tonight and heard the quote above..  It made me think..

Have I lost my Muchness??

In some ways I feel like I have... but then I remind myself..

I am running with my husband and family.

I am learning a new job.

I have helped friends and family train to meet their goals.

......No I am not training to qualify for Boston or setting Speed and distance PR's.

But, I still have my Muchness...and I have proof...for your viewing pleasure...

My Muchness is my Smile, my playfulness, and my ability to push to new Finish Lines, no matter the pace.  As time passes priorities change....the trick is to focus on the positives and never lose track of YOU because that is what makes you Much Muchier ;)

  • What gives you your Muchness??

Super great race photos. Awesome. I do like the finish line where you are looking at your Garmin, haha.

Good luck on Sunday! I will miss running with/behind you this year. I hope you crush it.

I'm thinking… right now I don't feel very much. I love the quote, and I'm going to try to get more much.

Great photos! Speed isn't everything. You're moving into a new phase of your running and bonding with family. Not every runner can be so lucky!

It's not in the WHAT
It's in the doing that matters.

And I think you are DOING it just right. Love that togetherness. Love that you are all DOING it together. Keep it up.

I'm sure you'll keep your Muchness for a long time to come. Way to stay positive. That's how I try to live.
