"Flagstaff Skyrace final is in 4 days. I won't be there. I will be here with my family as we help my mother-in-law pass this life. I made the final decision this morning, and I have a sense of relief"...I started that entry on 9/30/14, I didn't know how much time she had left. We lost her that night. I can't really put my feelings into words. Everything kinda came to a screeching halt. We knew it was coming, but it still felt sudden. It's also hard for me to realize the race series is over for me, the season is over. That suddenly stopped too. And I stare at the blinking cursor, lots of feelings, thoughts, emotion...no words.
