20 different races… 13 awards… and so many memories with the people I love. Runners really are phenomenal people!
As 2022 passes into history, I’m grateful to remember what I’ve learned, experienced and how I’ve grown.
The older I get, the more I realize it’s the simple things that bring happiness. My health, my family, the blessing of work and the opportunity to help others. I share my journey here not because I’m “better” than other people in anyway- instead I’ve learned that suffering can make you close to others who suffer.
Disease and trauma once held me captive, so the health, perspective and peace I feel now are cherished everyday. I just want those blessings for everyone. Here’s to 2023- and the gift of life!
