One Year Later: A New Year’s Marathon for our Angel 

An emotional day is near.  After 3 weeks off of what was a planned 2 month rest period, I’ve decided to lace them up early on New Year’s morning for marathon # 18. No starting gun, no race bib, no crowds, no medals… just me. This course is symbolic for many reasons. The run starts & ends at my house. I will pass Danbury hospital at mile 5 (both the place of our loss & the place of joy from the birth of our boys.) At mile 10, I visit Angelina’s place of rest, St. Mary’s Cemetary. At mile 13, I will pass our church, a source of strength, faith, & hope. Mile 22 marks the most difficult part of the course as it should; the largest incline and highest elevation. The final 5 miles of the course is the same loop that I ran last New Year’s upon returning from the hospital after holding Angelina & saying goodbye.   #22marathons #AMLongo
