If we were having a glass of wine…

If we were having a glass of wine, I would tell you that life has been incredible.  It’s been beyond busy, which has taken a toll on my writing and running. Yet it has been the happy kind of chaos.

I would remind you that my first goal was to finish the race without being last. That goal evolved to just finishing the race. Now the goal is to finish the race without needing an ambulance.  I would promise to let you know if you need to attend my funeral. I would also promise to stop talking about the race.
