Last year was a bit of a celebration after the running season ended. This year, I felt like there was no celebration to be had. But leave it to GZ to stir the pot with a seemingly random comment to me…something to the effect of “are we doing a get together this year?”. Within a day, I had an evite sent out with the title:
DID NOT FAIL (DNF) TO PARTY
So hey, let’s celebrate the defeat. Justin even went and did the research and printed out nametags for everyone that had DNFs with their claim(s) to fame on them. It was a nice touch. Everyone gathered at our house on great warm Colorado afternoon for some food, drink and socializing. A lot of running was talked but other topics did come up as well. Like how big the spiders are in our backyard.
I am nearly done with my 30 day hiatus from running. But I will never take a hiatus from the friends I have met along the way in this journey on the run. Its been amazing and its mostly possible because of the people. Each of these guys inspire me (daily) and I am lucky to call them all friends.
