Thank you for your kind thoughts. It's so true... It's so easy to take for granted what we have and all of a sudden things change and what you had you don't have anymore.
I'm getting ready to complete my 300th marathon in NYC this November. Nothing would trill me more than to return to Pikes Peak next year and compete in the races as well as see all my "regulars" who are addicted to Pikes Peak just as much as I am!
