March Madness - Day 2

Every minute counts!

Busy body, that's me. 😜

As I was leaving the office and walking to my car, I started to consider my options for the evening. It would be the first Friday evening that I wasn't on the road or with my family. That meant I could find lots to get into, right?

As I spent some time reflecting on 2018, I specifically took time to reflect on my running journey.

It was such an amazing year. The highlights can be found on my running blog. In a nutshell, there were ups and downs. There were achievements and setbacks. But through it all, there was so many life-transforming moments. One specific date of reflection was October 30. It was a day of wounding, both physically and figuratively.

I had an evening event at work so I decided to start the day with a run. You know, I wanted to get my blood pumping early. The problem was that I waited late in the morning to start, so I decided to do a quick out and back 2-mile run. As I was nearing my finish, I was running at a pretty decent spe…
