Another turn of the page, another year's worth of experiences to learn from...another year older.
There will be no crazy birthday stunt today - that was this weekend. Instead, I will be ringing it in fairly quietly with the help of a few of my friends tonight. No bells and whistles...just some beer, some grub and some good company.
Speaking of whom, I am ever so grateful to them, my family and my supportive girlfriend for putting up with me and my antics. I am also very grateful for discovering this awesome sport of ours as it has not only improved my quality of life, but also opened new doors and new opportunities for me.
I'm also grateful for having you, my like-minded friends in this running community of ours for your continued support, friendship and advice - without any of which, I would not be where I am at today. Maybe getting lost was what I needed to "find" myself and appreciate what I already have.
Sorry if I'm coming across overly sentimental; that's just what I'm feeling this morning as I ring in another year. Caustic sarcasm will commence approximately 24 hours from now.
Have a great day everyone!
