Yes. Running, walking, weight training, yoga, rowing. All of it is spiritual. Connecting with my body and making time for myself has gotten/ carried me through widowhood and now cancer.

My first regatta with @recoveryonwater. Make that my first regatta. Ever. Here are some goofy post-race crew pics and "first regatta" gifts: A race pin from my ROW teammates, and a ring from my besties. (oh and yes that is a ginormous racing blister on my thumb.). Pretty fucking awesome.
