Exciting journey of life

Warm rock under your feet, ocean to the horizon – the best place to grow. Being in warm wonderful places, I always think about how it would be great to live in such a place… If I was born between these mountains, I might not have understood. But with over 40 years of rainy winters behind, every sunny morning is a miracle. I pray that I will never stop admiring the beauty I see while traveling. 

Being in Fuerteventura, I loved running on a mountain to ventilate my head. Once in the middle of the mountain, another runner overtook me. I tried to chase briefly, but quickly suffocated and slowed down again. I am not used to running in the mountains.

I already knew that I would not be the fastest in the world: there would always be faster, better and smarter than me, so what now? Nothing special –  just to live as always, to run the way I like most.

Because in life, it’s not the champion’s medal that matters, but the exciting journey.

  1. It is interesting that my life has always settled me near water. In Latvia I lived close to the Daugava river and would go walking along it. Now I live between the ocean on one side walking distance and the Halifax River on the other side also walking distance. I guess mountains were not meant to be in my life yet all my childhood summers were spent in the Catskill Mountains of New York State
