"If movement is a sign of life and stillness is death, running is an example of life most fully lived. It's beautiful." -- British artist, Martin Creed
Hey there! I'm Felice, the Happy Runner. Thanks for visiting. I'm grateful for each and every person who stops by this blog, especially those who take the time to leave me a comment and let me know that, really, it isn't just my cat and me who read my words. OK, my cat doesn't really read my blog. I have to read the words to my cat. But he pretends to listen. Most of the time. When I'm not too boring.
This blog is a journal of my running, thoughts on running, and running-related tips and information that I've picked up or learned along the way. I'm not a professional runner, nor am I a runner who finishes races too close to the front of the pack. I occasionally place in my age group but it is very, very unlikely that I would ever win a race. I do, however, try my best. And I love, love, love to run. So I figure that has to count for something!
I have a few other things going on in my life beside running: I'm a mom to a two-year-old boy, a wife (of 10 years!) to a great guy, an active community volunteer, a freelance writer and editor, and a bit of a Yankees fan. I love Starburst jelly beans, Craisins, my Brooks Addiction running shoes and all of A.S. Byatt's books.
Why I have composed this like an online dating profile, I'll never know. But, now you know a little more about me. And I hope that's not a bad thing.
