Walking home from the gym and a car accident. The driver was asleep as he passed his home on the straight residential road.
He awoke at the curve but it was too late to navigate the curve.
We both reflected on how he was lucky to not have been on the Interstate where he had been 15 minutes prior.
He could have died.
Might have taken a few lives with him.
In the blink of an eye.
What’s a much slower potential disaster is the long-term effect of not exercising, not habitually resting adequately, nor getting balanced nutrition.
It’s a slow death i reckon.
No one notices.
It’s the American way.

If there’s one thing we’d pass on to our kids, nephews and nieces, it’s that regret sucks.
Was hit by a Jeep yesterday morning at an intersection while running. One stride ahead of what would have been serious injury, not excluding death.
Easy to talk about it now because it was a narrow miss. The sudden impact was only enough to twist a knee and be thrown off balance.
Should the worst arrive without warning, solace has been gloriously, and quietly, earned by finally fulfilling a 30+ year old promise to ‘write a book for our kids’.
It’s ok to not be satisfied.
And chase after that crazy dream you have.
You know the one.
The one you’ve always had.
Hit by a Jeep yesterday while running.
Lucky to be alive.
One stride difference would have been a very different outcome.
Other than that, it was a good five mile run.
The running, well, the running stopped. And the move to Central Florida on a very limited income for a young couple starting out was tough. By the way, they had only one car.
So jeff rode a bicycle 30 miles one-way to work – at the Disney’s Contemporary Resort Front Office. A couple years later, they could finally afford a second car.
Jeff got a promotion. A desk job on third shift. And gained 25 pounds.
