During one of my training runs by the canal near my house, I ran through clouds of gnats. Then the sun started to go down, and I wasn't finished running yet. You know about muscle soreness and expect fatigue, but sometimes you forget about environmental challenges you might face. But, even as I ran, I remembered that some people are also struggling and the challenges they face are more than a gnat in the eye.
Let me introduce you to one of my inspirations, Manda (also known as Alabama Pink, beloved commenter at a certain bitchy movie review site) is blogging about the challenges of cancer treatment, movies, zombies, book reviews, and more. She is a really funny, smart lady. AND she is living where I grew up, small world.
