Bottle a Feeling

How do you bottle up a feeling so you can remember exactly how you felt at a certain moment in time?  

When you are sad and want to be happy, the days you are lonely and wanted to be comforted, or maybe you are just feeling lazy and need to be motivated.  When I'm motivated and have energy to spare, why can't I save it to be used at a later date?  

There are so many things to say and do. Some days I don't have a minute to spare, yet others it feels like I am stuck in time - the clock has stopped and minutes feel like hours. 

Today is just one of those days. I wish I could go back in time and remember how I exactly how I felt at a certain moment in time. 

Rhythm & Blues 5K

On February 10th, Nick, Kellie and I ran the Rhythm & Blues 5K.  There were several bands scheduled to play along the course, but the weather threatened, so many of the bands canceled.  The course had several inclines, so music along the route was a great way to keep me motivated.  

After our race, there was a half marathon.  While snacking on post-race goodies, we became spectators of the half marathon.  It was fun and entertaining.  The course made three laps, so we were able to watch the front runner and cheer for him.
