that you CAN run more than ONE mile
that you're not doing this alone
how great a new running path feels
that you already knew a lot of runners
that you actually want to run
that you love company on some of your runs
that you can afford to eat an extra serving
that you need rest sometimes
that blisters will heal and toe-nails will grow back
that a bruised ego can turn into a lot of determination 
that the world gets smaller
that you are not scared anymore
that can, and sometimes even enjoy, running in the rain, the snow, a moonsoon
that you know how to do this
that you are inspiring everyone around you without even trying

                                           ...just some of the little glories of being a runner...
