Here’s a shout-out to East Liberty, Homewood, Friendship, and Shadyside on Sunday during the Pittsburgh Marathon! I am particular to them because they carried me through all 6.1 miles of my relay leg. Everyone was out enjoying the beautiful weather, cheering us on as we thundered through their neighborhoods in our running shoes and sweat. Music blasting from the street corners, lyrics joining the cheers and encouragement as it pounded through our blood. Even now, a few days later, I am still affected by the support of the neighborhoods, and as spectators they certainly deserve 1st place!
As you may have already guessed, cross-country running is my go-to, but it doesn’t stop me from enjoying many other recreational sports or activities. (WARNING: I like them but it doesn’t mean I’m any good ;)) What’s got you hooked, your heart-racing adrenaline taking over? As a spectator or a contender, the emotion of an event can be rather exciting! Whether it is basketball, football, hockey, golf, tennis, volleyball, or some other cool activity, you’ll be sure to find fans and players alike are all rooting for the big WIN! If you are the type that prefer to do computer whiz fun, getting artsy, or gaming (don’t worry, I didn’t forget you either) check out the sweet things that will get you up and running, too! (Well, maybe not literally…)

“An athlete cannot run with money in his pockets. He must run with hope in his heart and dreams in his head.” ~Emil Zatopek
