    I don’t run, but I immediately thought of Childbirth, the only thing that threw me was the word “enemy” …but I loved everything about it.

    have you redone this blog again??? I really like it. 🙂

      Yes. It might change again. I’m looking for….something. Clean lines, focus on my posts, professional look. This one doesn’t have as much flexibility but its a new wordpress theme, and I like it.

    I love the prompt this week! So much said in so few words. I love your choice of the word enemy instead of competitor, leads me to thinking running for his life instead of a race.

    Makes me think of a horse race. Which makes me want a mint julep.

    Love how so many scenarios are able to fit your words.

    Arg–reminded me of cross country. Why did I ever think running to exhaustion was fun?

    Nice image shoved into so few words.

    Definitely felt it was a race. I thought human but horse works as well.

    I like the new look. But I don’t like having all the buttons and other stuff pushed to the bottom (hence why I haven’t gone that way ;))

      I’m hoping to bring more as one of the Bloggy Moms Writing Workshop prompts is to write from the POV of a horse in a horse show or race…

    You just may have motivated me to put down my coffee cup (and my laptop) and head out for that overdue morning run!

    I’ll be back to visit-
