Action 086 - Take The Moment.

It's so easy to move quickly from one thing to the other, wrapping something up and immediately launching into something new. And when running a crazy and complex event like a Ragnar Relay, it's really easy to fly through the whole thing without acknowledging moments that matter.

Action 086 - Take The Moment. After completing my third leg, I climbed into the van and felt an overwhelming sense of accomplishment. I had done it. I had run 7.4 miles, nearly half of which was a crazy hill, and this after running 11.2 miles on two earlier legs.

I had finished my part of the Ragnar Del Sol. I had done what I came out from California to do. I had stepped in for friends in need and completed what was asked of me. And fortunately, I was smart enough to know that I needed to take a moment and let it all sink in.



Challenge accepted and met. And this is me, taking a moment to bask in the glory of it all. And that smile stayed plastered on my face just like that for at least the next fifteen minutes.
