These are just a few I love reading everybody's blog. If I made a list of all the blogs I love it would be over a hundred.
Ok, so now a huge shot out to my friend Cat!!!!! I am so happy to announce that she has made it six months clean and sober. I love me some Cat. She is the most supportive person in my life. I met her at the hospital when she was at a whole new level of rock bottom. To the point she had scraped holes in her forehead on a heroin binge and did not even realize it. She weighed about 80 pounds, and looked like a zombie. I do not know why I felt the immediate need to support her, I never had met her before this day. I never even tried a cigarette in my life. I have never used a drug. I had only seen the criminal side of drug use. The theft, burglary, possession, and other related crimes often associated with drug use. I knew I could help her. Let me tell you that drug use has no boundaries. It can affect rich, poor, smart, dumb, good looking, ugly etc. I am so happy to now know how beautiful and smart Cat is. She is the most caring and giving person and I wish her all the joy and health that I possibly can. Overcoming drug addiction is not easy. I would say it is one of the hardest things there is to do.
I cannot wait to hear all the great race reports from Chicago, Kona, and the Army ten miler. I have a lot of friends racing this weekend.
Were any of your friends racing this weekend?
Have you ever known somebody who was an addict?
