Welcome to Wednesday Word, a weekly linkup for everyone, not just health and fitness bloggers. Each Wednesday you will have a single word prompt to write about.  Let your imagination run free and share with your readers your interpretation of that word, or simply use it as inspiration for your post. Today’s word is optimism…..  I’d love to have you link up, and if you do, please remember to follow my six simple rules.


Optimism – a feeling or belief that good things will happen in the future;
a feeling or belief that what you hope for will happen

~ Merriam-Webster


I’m a glass half-full kind of girl, full of optimism. I don’t have time for negativity or being a Debbie Downer. Being positive is in my blood… 


I’m optimistic that our street will be plowed soon and I won’t have to walk in snow up past my knees! 


I’m optimistic because the forecast is for temperature above freezing and sunny days ahead.

I’m optimistic that the snow will melt off of the W&OD Trail and I can join my friends for another chatty run soon.

I’m optimistic because the Cruisers are running together again and we are having so much fun on our Saturday morning runs.

I’m optimistic because I have 836 MRTT runnings friends from which to draw inspiration and encouragement. 

I am optimistic that I will have a fun running and racing season.

I’m optimistic that February will pass quickly and spring will surprise us early this year.

I’m optimistic that sand will soon be under this cocktail instead of snow!


Shortly after I writing this post, a tractor with a front-end loader came to our rescue. Unfortunately, the driver left as quickly as he arrived, leaving nothing more than an emergency path down the center of our cul-de-sac. I am still optimistic that he or another plow will return and finish the job later today.


What are you optimistic about?
