A Humbled and Grateful Thank You

I am sitting in front of my computer screen trying to figure out how to put into words how I feel about the events of the last few days.

On Thursday afternoon I got an email from the National Post asking for interview and informing me that I been chosen as 2012's Most Inspiring Runner. Not more than 24 hours later my blog was listed among the nominees for a #Runchat award. There are some amazing people nominated so to be included in this list was a dream come true. ( You can vote for all your favs on the Runchat website until Dec. 26th)

To say that I am surprised is an understatement. When I started this grand adventure last year, I had secretly hoped and wished and dreamed that my musings would reach just one person. Just one person who was struggling, who felt lost, or who maybe had to face a medical misadventure of their own. I never in a million years expected the kind of reception and support I have received from this amazing community. And today I feel incredibly humbled and grateful for this journey and all of the places you have taken me.

Thank you.

Thank you for your kindness. Thank you for all of your support this year. And above all thank you for sticking by me and believing in me even when I struggled to believe in myself.

This year would never have been possible without you.

Love a very grateful Darwinian Fail,
