Why Can't We Be Friends?

If I've said it once, I've said it a thousand times.  All it takes is one good friend to help you fight the battle of that super soft pillow in the mornings.   If you could find one friend who is consistent and a little bit faster and stronger than you, it's a real nice bonus.  And if you could find one who wants to run or swim a little longer than you, or climb one more mountain on the bike with you, you've got yourself a real gem.

Fortunately, I've got lots of friends who aren't afraid to set their alarms in "the threes" to get up for a long bike ride.  They embrace the darkness of the early morning/very late night runs.  They turn back up the mountain for yet one more interval.  And swim off into the sunrise. They are crazy.

But crazy is as crazy does.  And we are better off because of it.

Thank you, friends.
