"I do not understand how anyone can live without some small place of enchantment to turn to."
 
-Marjorie Kinnan Rawlings
I began running ten years ago, and with each mile I have fallen more in love.  I am a recent college graduate beginning my teaching career in North Florida.  Although my competitive cross country career has come to a close, I make time to regularly return to the trails that I have grown up with and explore others throughout the state.
 
Currently unable to run because of a difficult case of osteitis pubis, I turned to the wise words of Marjorie Kinnan Rawlings.  Marjorie reminds me of why I love where I live and run, even including those tawny sand trails and the weight of the humid air.  There is no other place I would rather be.  This is the story of my return to running, racing, and natural Florida.
 
Through many miles, I have found my Cross Creek.  I hope to inspire you to find yours.
