Thanks to the amount of running I’ve been doing, I’m as healthy as ever.  Running has been good to me,  I’m optimistic that this will be something that will stay part of my life for a while.

Spending Time With Family

Lots of time to make up in this regard.  It’s going to take a while to catch up.   🙂
