Last Sunday, I ran the River Run Half Marathon for the eighth time. Seven years ago when I ran this for the first time, I never would have guessed that I would be (unofficially) pacing the same race for my fellow Fleet Feet Cleveland runners. Then, it was about finishing and not being too sore or too hungry afterwards. Now, it’s about hitting a target pace (and associated finish time) in a doable fashion and, when given the opportunity, being the pacer that I wish I had in some of the many races I’ve run.

In my office is a visioning collage. It’s been hanging on my wall next to my desk since I put it together in June of 2012. As you may have done at some point if you’ve ever made a collage, I flipped through various magazines as part of the exercise, cutting out images that held meaning for me. After arranging each piece, I glued everything to a backing sheet…and voila! An ad depicting a woman sleeping – I thought I needed more sleep, or maybe I was just honoring the fact that sleep has always been important to me.
