When we seek for connection, we restore the world to wholeness. Our seemingly separate lives become meaningful as we discover how truly necessary we are to each other.
-Margaret Wheatley

Whoo hoo, I completed the Portland Marathon, all 26.2 miles of it! My sister was a great help. She encouraged me along the way and waited for me at the end so we could cross the finish line together.

Over 12,000 people participated in the event. At one point, I looked around and found myself in tears appreciating the resiliency and strength of the human spirit. I saw a blind woman walking with assistance; a young man clicking down the street with prosthesis on both legs; two service men in Camaflogue, wearing combat boots and 40lb packs; a 72-year old woman on her 42nd marathon; and so many other variations of humanity. It was awesome!

I was amazed and touched by the support team that held and encouraged all the runners and walkers. There were water stations every mile, music playing at least every three miles, and people standing on the sidelines giving words of encouragement that were like music to the soul.

At the end of the day, my sister, two nieces, and I hobbled through the door of my other sister’s home with our blistered feet and tired bodies. We celebrated by eating a beautiful meal she had lovingly prepared for us. I felt so cared for.

When I returned home I had a massage that had been gifted me from a friend. Connection to others is everything.
