Blog-spirations

I was disconnected for most of the weekend in Seattle and fell way behind in my blog reading. It always kinda stresses me out when my Google Reader starts to read triple digits! So I planned to forego writing my own post for today in favor of spending the evening catching up on the unread posts. As I read through training recaps, race reports, epiphanies and new discoveries, I thought to myself, "Damn, these are some strong, fierce, talented people!"...

...I am truly amazed at how connected I can feel to so many people, most of whom I've never met before...

...so I just wanted to take a moment and say, "Thank you for inspiring me!"
