Bittersweet is how I would describe 2011. More sweet than bitter, as it turns out. I’ll take it. It’s the best anyone can hope for, right?
Taking care of Argus and his cancer
Nagging shoulder injury, causing pre-race stress
Signing up for Ironman Canada (This might be sweet, but right now I’m terrified.)
The run-in with the sea urchins while on vacation.
Winter fun in Tahoe
Wildflower fun and race success
I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: I live a charmed life. My body continues to fulfill me and all the crazy shit I ask it to do; I do not take my health for granted. I am fortunate to have people who love me and people who I love. And in many cases, these paths intersect. I’m so grateful.
The year ahead is filled with such promise and I intend to live each day fully. I hope you’ll do the same.
Happy new year!
