"Wild Horses I wanna be like you
Throwing caution to the wind
I'll run free too.
Wish I could recklessly love
Like I'm longing to.
I wanna run with the Wild Horses..."
I saw this passage on a friend’s blog and it got me to thinking about my own transformation from what was once a dream to where I am today.
In the beginning, my goals didn’t seem to have substance and didn’t seem to have a clear purpose. I knew I wanted to make a change but felt like I was making my way through the fog one day at a time.

When I started getting in shape, running was impossible for me. Over time, running has become my love and passion. Running was a wonderful way for me to take my arbitrary goals and set them in concrete. When. Where. Why. How long. What do I have to do between now and race day to be prepared?
I have had the privilege of running with great friends in some of the most beautiful country around here. I was also fortunate enough to capture these pictures during a run of a wild mare and her colt in the desert outside of town here in Idaho.
