A Good Morning. No, A Great Morning.

(A Note from the Editor: I jotted this down in wordpress on May 4th and recently found it in my drafts by accident, looking for something else. I was working on another post that morning but just remember these words in my head so I paused what I was doing, created a new post, spilled my thoughts on to the digital page, and then hit save with no intention of publishing, but alas here we are… published.

In high school, I ran track and field.  My favorite race was the 1600m– four laps around a track, a mile, in case you’re not well versed in metric.  As a competitor, you spent the beginning of the race setting your pace and the first two laps were relatively easy—don’t burn out, don’t lose pace with the pack.  In many ways the third lap, though, really decided whether or not you would have a shot. The last lap?  Well, that’s where …
