In these uncertain times we are all trying to adjust to a new normal.

Like many of you, I’m finding gratitude in the things that I sometimes take for granted while also embracing the time with family and with myself that – prior to COVID-19 – I never seemed to have enough of.

I’m finding joy in returning to basics and things I didn’t even realize I missed.

Like running the bridle path in Central Phoenix.

I trained for nearly a dozen marathons on this path.

I spent countless hours, days, weeks, months, and years logging miles on this path.

It’s been five years since I’ve run it.

The return was magnificent.

So many emotions came flooding back.

 So many memories of dropping off my kids at school, parking and taking off along the path.

The shady trees, the friendly faces – I didn’t realize how much I missed it!

My husband came too and we brought Gunnar to experience the path for the first time.

It was joyous!

Then we stopped by Richardsons to pick up dinner (their Carne Adovada is amazing!) via their curbside pickup.

It is not lost on me that this public health crisis is seriously impacting people, organizations and small businesses in our community that are struggling to stay afloat right now.

In times of crisis, Arizona has always responded and risen to love and support each other – and now more than ever – we need to keep finding ways to continue that.

This week on my YouTube channel, I’ll be talking to some of those folks directly impacted, about how they are pivoting to keep doing what they do and how we as a community can help support them.

The first episode features Lauren Teahen, Co- owner of Sorso Wine Room.

Stay safe and stay supportive everyone
