keychain.jpgOnce again, we are swimming in a sea of winged cupids, arrows, and red and pink hearts. It is the month of love, or so we have deemed it. At least, it is the month where the word “love” is used most, to describe what Merriam Webster refers to as “attraction based on sexual desire, or affection and tenderness felt by lovers.”

Yet love is so vast, that it simply cannot be contained by a single definition. These days, defintions of “love” like Webster’s “an unselfish loyal and benevolent concern for the good of another” and Eckhart Tolle’s “a state of being” and “recognizing yourself in another” tend to resonate most with me.

TALLAHASSEE, Florida -- It was a fine morning for a cross country meet at Apalachee Regional Park, with mostly sunny skies, light winds and 40 degree temperatures for the Masters Women and Men who went off at 9AM and 9:45AM.

In 2016, when they held the National Club Cross Country Championships on this same course at Tallahassee, Sonja Friend-Uhl sprinted away over the last 500 meters to take the crown. But there was a different set of competitors this time. Jennifer Bayliss and Maggie Shearer formed a lead pack with Friend-Uhl in the first loop of the 6K course. The pack held together with Friend-Uhl in the lead until the forested section of the loop, when Bayliss and Shearer started to pull gradually away from Friend-Uhl. Bayliss used her strength up the last hill and over the top to also pull away from Shearer, forging a 5 second victory in 22:14.
