Welcome to the year 2020. What an emotional rollercoaster ride that 2019 was. It felt right to answer the call and honor so many. Talking to the families it was good to hear how it helped bring some light to their grieving process and even some of them started to get into activities to help them get to the next path of their lives.
To say that 2020 has had an interesting start maybe a little bit of an understatement. My family started off on a great new year together. Reflecting on the new year we wondered if maybe there was more to all of this. Let’s expand and see how we could help and keep the honor going in other ways.
- Honor those we have lost and have fought battles.
- Bringing Awareness to Causes.
- Providing resources to those in need of help.
- Providing tips and reviews to help people get going on a healthier lifestyle.
In the last few couple of races, we noticed that I was sneezing rapidly nonstop and my nose was very runny. I chalked it up to being an allergy sufferer but Rachelle and I decided it was probably a good idea to get it checked out just to be sure. Through testing, they found 4 polyps in my nasal passages and that my right side was 80-90% blocked. That surgery suuuucked but upon recovery has made a night and day difference!
Thank you so so much for taking care of me Rachelle! You are amazing as always!
Well, it was also a very awesome but bittersweet time in our sports fandom life. Our beloved Kansas City Chiefs made won the Super Bowl! WOOHOO! My Grandma Romero would come over on Sundays and watch the game as she was a big Chiefs fan also (and the very reason why I was one in the first place). The week before the Chiefs went to the Super Bowl she had a massive stroke and passed away a few days later.
My family and I knew who the next race was for.. bring it in 2020.
This is my command—be strong and courageous! Do not be afraid or discouraged. For the Lord your God is with you wherever you go.” – Joshua 1:9
