My Birthday Wish Came True!

Amity sent me a marathon haiku in honor of my birthday today:

Cake is rich in carbs
Yummy birthday glycogen
For those hungry miles

Wow. Another birthday is here!!! I spent the day seeing Dr. Rob about my darn gimpy knee, buying new running shoes and going to work. Exciting, I know. I can tell I'm into this running stuff when I get excited over a new pair of shoes. Thomas was a gem and took me for some Mexican food grub tonight. Yummy! And, one of the best parts of the day was getting all the phone calls from friends and family. I am so thankful for all of you in my life and appreciate all the "happy birthday" serenades I received today (Chris...your voicemail and singing "talent" took the cake!).

Honestly? I am in sooo much better shape than I was last year on my birthday. I mean, no chemo treatments?!!! That in itself made this a very (very!) special day. I am well, which was my birthday wish last year. IT CAME TRUE! I have my health. I have awesome family and friends that took time out of their days to wish me a happy day. And heck -- being a twin, I even got to share this day with my "gemela"/twin Angie! (HAPPY BIRTHDAY, ANGIE!!!)It's kinda cool knowing that there is always going to be one person on this planet that will remember my birthday.

Happy Birthday to me (& Ang)!!! Let the festivities begin! (uh...yeah...don't even ask how I'm going to do all the festivities this week and still run 18 miles on Saturday with a gimpy knee...of which, the Dr. today told me to stop running for a few days....).
