Running & Writing, One in the Same

So much to say and so little time! I hope you all had a great weekend like I did. I'm still pretty tired, but I'm so excited to share all the photos with you! To start the week off on the right foot, I thought I'd share something that my editor at HooplaHa sent me in an email mid-afternoon last week. She knows that I'm a runner, along with a writer, so this really hit home.
“Running! If there’s any activity happier, more exhilarating, more nourishing to the imagination, I can’t think what it might be. In running, the mind flies with the body; the mysterious efflorescence of language seems to pulse in the brain, in rhythm with our feet and the swinging of our arms. Ideally, the runner who’s a writer is running through the land and cityscapes of her fiction, like a ghost in a real setting.”
- Joyce Carol Oates
