What a day. 

The running community took a hit in Boston – a very sad moment for the world’s most famous marathon.  My stomach hurts and my heart aches for both my fellow runners and the loving community of spectators who make the marathon such an exciting experience.  Now I want to qualify more than ever – Fear can’t win. 
Prior to the disaster up north, Chest Day was a big success at the gym.  I giddily rehashed the weekend’s running activities with Coach, and he had that look on his face that makes me tingle all over.  I just love that look.
It’s hard to believe it’s been almost a year since I began my workouts with Coach.  What a lot of changes.  I’m not the same person at all.  My body is different.  My mind is different.  My soul is different.  I had no idea what I was getting into when I signed up at that gym. 
Some of the journey has actually reconnected me with old, lost parts of myself, and some of it has led me to brand-new ideas and feelings in a continuous evolution into a new and improved me.
A page is turning – I feel it.  And the story just keeps getting better and better…
