For Eva

In a day or two I will write about my first 10K.

I finished it.  Yeay.

I dedicated it to my friend "Eva", who has been going through hell. 

Every step I took I thought of her fighting to breathe.

Every little pain I thought of the skin rash that started this whole nightmare.

When I finished, I texted her cousin -- who is another incredible friend and the one who has been keeping me up to date.

He texted back.

She went to Heaven this morning about 11 am.

Praise God.  She is where she belongs. 

Thank you "Eva" - for inspiring me to do something I couldn't have done otherwise.  I love you sister.


  1. What a way to honor your friend!
    I am both proud of you and sorry for your loss.
    I am so glad you got to have her in your life to inspire you. I wish I had known her.

  2. I'm so sorry to hear about "Eva" - but I know she fought just as you did.
    I'm sure she'll continue to provide you with lots of inspiration along the rest of your journey. Thank you for sharing her story.

  3. I'm so sorry to read this. Eva sounded like one HELL of a lady, and you gave her an amazing send-off here. I'm glad her struggle is soothed--

    and I love you.


I LOVE to read comments. Seriously. I check them every day. Insecure? Maybe.
