What do YOU do?
By Jeanine Burnett, President, Lake County Milers
2020 will go down in the history books as a VERY challenging
year. I hope 2021 turns out to be much better. What do you
do when things seem to be falling apart all around you? Your
injured? It rains during a long run? Work sucks? You have a
cold? You can't hang out with hoards of people like you are
I encourage you to grab every positive moment you can. GET
MUCH JOY in the little things. Listen to your inner voice and
do what ever you can to keep your own energy stores
replenished. Hang out with positive people that encourage
you to be your best and to move forward!
I had a sweet visit from my Dad and my stepmom this last
weekend (my dad and myself pictured on right Spring Has
Sprung event around 7 years ago while he was receiving a
age division medal).
My dad has always been my biggest cheerleader. He now has mid-stage Alzheimer's and things are going downhill fast. He knows it, but continues to get joy in everything he can. He gets up with a great attitude, exhibits constant gratefulness and while things are a real struggle his attitude towards life is great. He has always been gung-ho about life and that attitude has been a fantastic example for me.
Most of us are WAY better off than my dad, we shall get through this rough patch and will accomplish many things. Fight to have a positive outlook. Look for new challenges that you can pour your energy into. If you need help, reach out. Encourage your running buddies to up their game. Up your own game..... Realize that your positive attitude and encouragement means the world to others.
BE A LEADER.

Total cumulative challenge miles run by all was 10,588!
For a lot of runners, nothing makes us happier than running in an event with our buddies after months and months of training. Some of us are fast, some of us, not so much.... The feeling of accomplishment at the finish line is mostly the same. Relief, soreness, fatigue and a sense of pride that is hard to duplicate. Here are a few pictures from the race many of us ran just before the world shut down; The beautiful Napa Valley Marathon, Sunday March 1st, 2020.
The Milers are looking forward to the Santa Rosa Marathon in August , Our own rescheduled Spring has Sprung happening October 4th, and the California International Marathon in December!
