"But something changed during that run. I found peace with whatever the future holds for racing during these scary times. I no longer looked back at Boston 2019 and relived the anxiety I experienced. I was once again in control of my own happiness and love for the sport."

VOICES OF CORONA--Michon's Story

"I have been delivering anesthesia for 16 years, and like everyone else, had never anticipated the departures from my very safe routines that COVID has caused.  Aside from patient safety and personal protective gear, we are constantly thinking about ways to keep airway circuits closed; safely, having nurses far away from a coughing, waking-up, patient, putting in breathing tubes with little to no expiration from my patient, and then waking them at the end of a surgery.

"Patient anxiety has been paramount on our minds, as people come into the hospital for needed surgeries, with fear of exposure as well as complete lack of family/friend, support."

"As soon as lockdown began, I started experiencing twitching in my legs, which quickly evolved into muscle cramping, insomnia, and joint pain. After a few hospital stints, multiple neurologist and rheumatologist appointments, and several anxiety attacks, I was officially diagnosed with lupus, a chronic autoimmune disease that can affect your kidneys, joints, and lungs."

"On the photography side, all of my spring and summer weddings got postponed or canceled, so I quickly had to pivot and come up with a new business model."

"From a professional standpoint, the biggest challenge was going from working full-time within the running community (as a coach and training program coordinator for my local running store) to only being able to connect virtually and with reduced hours (3 hours/week).

"Our local race was cancelled - whose wasn’t?!?! - and continually finding new ways to keep my athletes engaged and motivated while providing value for the remainder of the training season took a lot of energy and effort. The emotional toll was pretty high as well because so many of my athletes were training for their first ever half or full marathon, which obviously didn’t happen."

"I hadn’t realized how heavy the burden of moving had become. I was letting it steal joy from other areas of my life; and once I laid it down, it freed me up to be content with where I’m at and enjoy every blessing the day brings. Right here, right now. My new motto: Stop waiting, start living."

"Managing a brick and mortar from a computer screen has been challenging. Making sure that my community knows that we're still here, that we're not going anywhere and that we stand together is the most important message for me to convey. I'm not sure I'm doing it right, but I sure am trying my best."

Kobe. Soaking. Running Wild.

Kobe. Soaking. Running Wild.

January 28, 2020

At least that’s what I was writing when I glanced up at the television and saw breaking news that Kobe Bryant had been killed in a helicopter crash. I forgot all about my life-and-dishes analogy and, like most of America, mourned a celebrity athlete that I never knew. Because he was young. Because his daughter was with him. Because, I guessed, he had more life to live and his story seemed unfinished.
