so i did.
each week saw me grow stronger.
each run saw me grow stronger.
each race saw me grow stronger.
i had my last race of my "spring season" this past weekend. it marked the first time in three years i've raced back-to-back weekends.
i wasn't sure how wise of a move it was, but this wasn't a race i would miss for anything.
i may not have been able to tap the sign on my way to the start line, but i did my best to play like a champion anyway.
and then i got to sit back and watch the sun rise over the stadium wall.
it was a fitting beginning to the coming summer, as i run forward with a little confidence and a lot of optimism.
