    Loved your first quote. Enjoyed meeting and having dinner with you at the Broken Top Wine pairing last week. Hope your healing is fast and you will be back to running soon.

    • Hey, you found me! We had a great time too, was so nice to meet all of you. Thank you for the well wishes. I will get back to running eventually but will be hiking plenty before then. We will have to get together to hit some trails, drink more wine, or both!
