to honor

today I pause.
today I refrain from writing about heartrates and muscles and zone 5 intervals.
I will not share a story of power camp or bad jokes or reflections at 5 in the morning.

today I'm simply pausing and honoring the changes a year can bring, honoring a life, honoring the physical absence of someone who will never truly be gone.

perhaps all the running, the pedaling, the rowing, the swimming, every bit of effort we all exert today may be considered to be a tribute to those who can no longer do those things. we all have people on our lists, and I send love to all who may also pause, today, and spend just a moment honoring an absence.
