Just a quick note to say that I’m still here :). For the last week, I’ve been in Mexico celebrating ten years of marriage with my wife. I’m writing this while sitting on a patio in Playa Del Carmen enjoying an inexplicably relaxing and cool breeze. This break has been so refreshing and rejuvenating for me. I’ve also done a fair bit of reading on veganism and minimalism... two areas of focus that I will continue to expand upon in my personal life. I am at peace in the moment; but when I return to the US, I plan to increasingly apply these concepts to my running. A few more days of break and then it’s back to my daily running - my daily peace.
