A mild Holiday season has now changed to snow and slush on the East Coast, snow in Texas and dangerous rain in the Midwest, including my birthplace, Missouri.
I had planned to take a couple of days off around the holidays, but that time has just been extended with a bit of a cold and helping around my parent’s house.
It has also been with its own sadness: the loss of Mike Byrnes, one of the real innovators in our sport, who passed away the day after Christmas.
Time to get in a few walks with my son, Adam, and his dog, Hachi. I try to appreciate Hachi, who loves our six mile walks in the morning, and enjoys each moment as they come.
A few nice phone calls have put the year in perspective. A text from good friend, reminding me of our early running nearly forty years ago.
Such is the time around the holidays.
Enjoy it, savor it, remember it.
