Top photo was how I felt on this run. And the following photos capture your amazingness, Micho.
There is no way I would have gotten through this last long run without your incredible spirit, support, humor, and badass-ery. Don’t know what I did to deserve a running buddy as great as you, but you rock.
Meesh: How many miles are you going?
Me: 20
Meesh: Nope, 22.
Me: OK

Like a Boss

To all my DFMC teammates who were out there in the AM with me putting 20-22 miles away. You inspire me. Crushed it.
