Running and ART!

My weekend has consisted of two of my favorite things:  running and art! I would be lying if I said running was one of my fave things - it's not so much the actual running as it is the feeling you have after you finish a long run that I love!!  Curtis and I ran in the Cowtown races this weekend - I did the 10K and he ran his first full.  It truly was exhilarating!!  This was my first time to run for a cause of my choosing - I ran for a little boy that used to go to one of the schools I've subbed at this year.  He is autistic, so we were running for a cure for that, as well as for him, and the home/organization where he is now!  It was a great feeling to run with purpose while thinking of this sweet little boy and his precious family!  We also watched a movie called The Spirit of the Marathon - VERY INSPIRING, if you haven't seen it, do - it will inspire you too!  

As for art...I am feeling like being creative lately and I have so many ideas for paintings in my head - just not enough canvas.  I have been thinking about just buying a roll of canvas, but then I'd have to learn how to stretch it, etc.?  Have any of you ever done this?  How hard is it?  My art has been mainly inspirational this year so far - I think God has had to work some things out in me...therefore, that is what has come out in my painting lately!

Anyway...its weekends like this that I love - just doing the things I love to do!

You ran a 10K?? Awesome! You go, girl. I just signed up for the Susan G. Komen 3-Day Walk. I'll be walking 60 miles in November!
