Just an update on my daughter's participation in the Disney World Marathon.
A total of 65,000 people participated.
She placed with a time for the marathon of 3:18....which is her new record.  She came in 4th in her age group and 17th overall.  She was mentioned in the Orlando Sentinel...,0,577297.story  hopefully you can read it.

We are all proud of her.  Today she rested.

Happy Saturday everyone!

     "Happiness is like a butterfly; the more you chase it, the more it will elude you, but if you turn your attention to other things, it will come and sit softly on your shoulders."

Are you chasing happiness?  What brings pleasure to your every day life?

I woke up this morning and was about to turn on the television and slapped my hand and instead began working on my goal setting.  Do you set goals?  Do you write them down?  If so, I would love to hear about your experience.  Did it help you achieve your goals to actually write them perhaps visualize them or actually find pictures to support the ideas you have inside?

My goals are in six categories...

I did some research on line for these....and actually in most articles it said to not share your goals with others.  So I won't share the individual goals but just the idea of my new endeavor.
Hopefully these won't be like New Year's resolutions...which I purposely didn't do because all my past new year's resolutions failed.

On another note.  My daughter, Arlene, is competing this weekend at Disney World.  She will win 3 medals and has already been given three t-shirts.  This morning she ran a half marathon and tomorrow she will run a full marathon.  She is in the first wave...I think she said her number is 146...hoping she does well.  Thirty nine miles in one weekend is totally mind-boggling to me!!!  Good luck to Arlene!  Next she will begin training for the qualifying triathlon for the Olympics...where she gets all this energy is beyond me.

Have a great weekend!!
