I can’t possibly write enough to cover what has occurred over this last year. Ups and downs, but definitely more ups. Joys and sadness, but definitely more joy. I feel that my life is more than I ever could have imagined, and more than I ever deserved — my family, my friends, my Club members, my training partners, my business partners — life is good. I truly love the life I live, and I live the life I love.
Although not sunny in Florida today it’s still warm. I enjoyed a steady paced 5 mile run and thought of other runs I’ve been on while traveling. The abandoned orange groves remind me of my training trips to Clermont, Florida. The cows and other wildlife remind me of runs in Costa Rica — especially the cows — which led me to think of my friends Mary Lynn and Bryan and the debate over skinny cows vs. healthy cows.
Quiet night tonight, I don’t expect we will be still awake to ring in 2014. Tomorrow I plan to join in the TI Virtual Swim, still need to decide on a practice but I am looking forward to the beauty of the outdoor long course pool!
