I was running a half-marathon in Skagway, AK last week. (I'm from Ontario.) It was cold, raining, uphill both ways, and partly along a dirt road. So there I was, cold, wet, sore, wondering why on earth I'm a runner.....when the song "Pumpin' Blood" by NONONO came on my iPod. ("It's your heart...it's alive...it's pumpin' blood...") and I actually started laughing. Seriously, out loud laughing - because I never dreamed that one day I'd be a runner, let alone run a race in ALASKA.
