I forgot to mention in my Hensley Off Road Races 10K post that I got to meet a faithful Mind Over Miles reader from Madera. I absolutely LOVE hearing from readers that they enjoyed my column or that it inspired them. That is hands down the best thing a columnist could hear.
I didn’t quite catch his name. I think it was Roland? I was beaming when he said, “Your columns really inspired me. I actually kept a few of them.” How freakin’ cool is that!!
“See, I told you! People really miss your column! And they miss you writing for the Tribune,” said Audrey, who was also at the race.
It feels good to be missed 🙂 I kind of felt like no one would even notice that I was gone, and it’s nice to know that isn’t true!
