Another great road race, another wonderful fall day....and my niece Jaime came in second place! She ran so well today, so strong. What is more impressive to me is Jaime's positive attitude and her determination. I am as proud of an uncle whether she finishes second or last. I like sporting events because the athletes are pushing themselves to accomplish a goal. At running events one can see athletes of all ages and abilities. Young and old(er) all share a common experience for that moment in time.
