Running season is beginning again. This is the time that I remember most what I am doing with my own recovery and the miracle of my sobriety. Tonight I am spending time with my parents. They were there for me when I was at my worst. Tomorrow I will get up at 5 am and run the length of New Smyrna Beach from Flagler Ave to the jetties and back - about 5 miles. Then go surfing if there are waves or Stand Up Paddleboarding if there are not. I am 51 years old and I will do these things as if I am 21 years old. When I was 41 years old, I was drunk at this time on a Saturday night. Not this Saturday night or any other for many years. Sunday mornings feel really good.
I am so grateful to take part in this miracle - to be a miracle or a tragedy. Miracle today, baby!!!
