Drive

People continue to amaze me:
I sat on my ass dreading my 1 mile run in the cold basement. I'd would have rather gone to bed.  There I was, with a warm laptop laid across my extended legs soaking up the heat from the pellet stove.  I got sucked into surfing.  
In my travels through the interconnected webs I come across a picture of a woman with a beaming smile, standing next to Bart Yasso of Runner's World.
This proud woman had finished the Richmond Half Marathon (which was held last month) while battling Stage 4 Cancer. Yesterday, she lost her fight. 
Tonight I got up off my ass and ran a mile for her.
