Freedom is....

"Freedom has its life in the hearts, the actions, the spirit of men and so it must be daily earned and refreshed - else like a flower cut from its life-giving roots, it will wither and die." ~Dwight D. Eisenhower

  • Knowing that given enough time (and food!), my own two feet could take me anywhere.
  • Thinking about cadence and heart rate and electrolytes, instead of worrying about paying rent, feeding my kids, and making it to my next paycheck.
  • Running unafraid in a neighborhood free from violence.
  • Sleeping in on a day off thanks to the service of others.
