Praise hands - 2016 is almost over!
Glory be what a year. And the honest truth is that any year that I can say my job is my calling, and my calling is my job, is a damn fine year. So nothing but love 2016. You were a passage, an Olympics, a flash point, a hail mary, and a love note written on the back of a cease and desist letter. You made it rain and you stoked the fire. But most importantly, you delivered me into the company of greatness. The greatness of runners, of friends, of new teammates, of Nest family, of big moments on big stages, and the grace of small things.
Thank you strong women.
Thank you besties.
Thank you dreamers.
And natural born leaders.
Thank you wee birds and wise birds.
And unapologetic moms.
Thank you sisterhood.
Thank you sun.
Thank you snow.

Thank you fans.
Thank you bird friends.
And thank you church of Sunday long run.
Praise hands 2016. It was a great GREAT year.
But 2017... well, who knows... but all I can say is 7's are my thing.
