It is time for me to look ahead and stop being depressed. I have a goal to reach and I am doing it! I looked at my goal that I set at the beginning of the year, and now it is time to achieve it! Greg Morris taught me to write down my goals and look at them each month so I would be on track. He taught me so much and became my dearest friend. I have spent the last 30 days mourning for Greg and the unknown haunting me each night. Now, as he lay in ICU in Madrid, Spain fighting for so much, I am going to snap out of it!
I want to share a memory. When Matt was 16 years old, I was struggling through a divorce and feeling sorry for myself. At one point, Greg straightened me out. He sat down with me and said, “Kristine, you have to get your f ing shit together! Your life isn’t over and your son needs you! You have a good job and great friends. I will help you, but pull yourself together and you will get through this!” He was firm and that is just what I needed.
So, this is it – I am getting my act together as Greg has always taught me and I am going to achieve my goal! My 2017 race season is for GREG MORRIS and when I make it to Kona (with all your help), I pray that Greg and his wife, Michele, will be in Kona with me. I will race for him and hope when I cross the line, he is there with my husband and kids.
My posts will be more regular now. I have $50,000 to raise for a very worthy cause.
Commitment to Community and Greg!
