You can read the actual essay here. When I showed up at work today, I'd received several emails and phone calls of support (And thanks Jerry).
Thanks, too, to Kelly at Big A little a for including a link to my essay in her list writers and illustrators who are out and about, being interviewed, profiled, and writing essays.
Now, about the 10K. I finished. Ran the entire distance. Didn't walk, stop or even pause to use the restroom, which was a challenge since my wife was insistent that I be well hydrated before the race.
This was my first 10K, and not to brag, but I didn't prepare for it at all. I think it was the Tae Bo that I've been doing every other day that helped. Anyway, today is a good day.
