A much-appreciated reminder of who I am

Do you know Tracy Reifkind? If not, you really should. Her story is wonderful. The way she lives is inspiring. And she's the real deal -- she walks her talk, that's for sure.

So I've been away from reading blogs for quite a long time, but when I pulled up Tracy's blog on January 1st, I was delighted to see a picture of us, as well as a post she'd written about something I said the last time we were together. Her words are well worth reading (so go read them!) but what really struck me was seeing me as I ...

(sorry -- a little dog poop in the house interruption, which I've now taken care of)

...so where was I? Seeing me as I ... what? Was? Am? Both? Yeah, both. Last year I lost sight of who I am. By the end of 2009, it was impossible to believe that just one year earlier, I was a runner. A real runner who ran a marathon. But now? I'm an athlete. A runner. And the REAL me is back!

I always say: "That's a good problem to have" when referring to similar situations. It reminds me not to sweat the small stuff and just enjoy my life.

Glad you're back!
