For my Omi (Grandma) and BRFs

27 Nov

Occasionally I send cards to my Grandmother in Germany, who is now 94.  With school pictures of her great-grand children to send to her I went a bought her a card today.

For some reason I felt the need to share what was on the front of the card with my BRFs (I know my Grandma will crack out her German/English dictionary and figure out what the card says): 

Do not go where the path may lead;
go instead
where there is no path
and leave a trail.
– Ralph Waldo Emerson

I hope everyone has a great day!

    I like that quote also. So appropriate as we try to carve a path in running.
