Joy and Sorrow

2012 started off with a bang. I finally breached the 200 mile mark for the month of January. This is the highest monthly total for me, ever. I felt great the whole way. My goals are being met, and I'm on pace to break that 2000 mile year. That, coupled with the fact I just received a promotion at work, has made this a good year so far. I say good, not great. Not great because the same day I received the promotion, I also attended a funeral to bury one of my young officers. He was only 28. Unfortunately, with triumphs, sometimes great sorrow follows. However, I am blessed and fortunate to have my family and my running to help keep me sane. Count your blessings my friends. Enjoy life to the fullest.
