I arise today
Since Global Running Day I've been trying to write a post about the person who inspires and has positively influenced my running, but I could not put it into words. And then Gabe Grunewald died and I tried to do it again... and then I tried again when I wrote my weekly recap.... and now, 5 years after his death, I still can't put into words how much my high school coach, Kevin Kirk, meant to me and how much he influenced my life, and still continues to. He was as stoic and poetic as it comes... and any of my words wouldn't do justice. Words aren’t my thing, but Running is. I try to continue to express my gratitude when I run and do my best to be present when I run and honor him that way... the only way I know how....
Rest In Peace, My friend. Thank you for everything.... You are loved and missed.
And until we meet again,
Welcome to my blog! I've been blogging for a long time on various platforms. My intention has never been to reach the masses, but rather to give myself a chance to reflect and journal. I feel it at least challenges me to be somewhat coherent, however you can expect ramblings and grammatical incorrectness here!
I've recently been diagnosed with CECS and fPAES and had it treated with BOTOX of all things... So I suspect to see more and more people looking for answers with that in the future and hope to continue blogging so there will be easy to access follow-ups as that was helpful for me.
NOTE: Apologies that some of the pictures incorrectly load sometimes. I try to keep up with the glitches, but can't always! Hope it doesn't impact the blog experience for all the PAES visitors.
