The following entries (from beginning runner to half marathon finisher) represents a continuing journey of tremendous grief and sorrow, and of transformation - largely through the therapeutic power of running. The sorrow that has broken my heart open wide has in time allowed me to experience the beauty of being in the present moment. And of course, without the support of family and friends to guide me, I would not have made it this far.

If you have lost someone in your life, I offer these words and verse (some Kristy's, some mine and others) with the hope it may touch your heart and help you heal.

Love is stronger than death she said
as I reached to find her near
a breath, a look, a yearning smile
are but mirrors from the dead

  1. dear Kristy...

    my senses were challenged just now
    yet your compassion was my strength
    as I struggled to keep my wits

    so i came here to look at you
    and there were new words for me
    so special indeed

    I always will be thankful for you
