There are certain limits to the things I can do and see.

From a hotel room, but never basking in Poseidon’s glory.

I have to close my eyes and imagine the feel of the wind in my hair.

My soul knows the earth’s whispered secrets are forbidden to me.

There are destinations where the word “accessibility” is no more than a faint shadow of a dream.

I’ll never swim there. Never stand there. Won’t go there.

I’ll only go those places in pictures.

I’ll only see them from here.

This might be as close as I get to some places.

At least this is the one place that matters most.

    Sometime in the last six months, as I watched friends and family in failing health, fighting cancer, and having heart attacks, I decided that whenever I run I will repeat this in my head over and over, “I run because I am able. I run for those who can’t.”

    I am not going to take it for granted. I promise you that.
