And a special birthday shout-out to two of track and field’s greatest gifts: the late Paavo Nurmi and James “Jungle Gym” Bevan, my coach, mentor, and inspiration of six years and counting. I’m not sure what the inverse of “coachable” is, but you’re it to the maximum. May your day be filled with as many stranger fist pumps, bumpin Pandora jams, steering wheel drum beats, and outrageous conspiracy theories as you can handle. I’m looking forward to that first North and South session back, you pumping alongside on the Elliptigo and your “Goooood”s and “Beautiful!”s firing me up, more than I can say.


Happy Birthday, Gem!

    Amazing drawing of the month of May, you are one multi-talented person Becky 🙂 Hope you’re doing amazing in Finland. I miss our runs here in Sweden! Just want to wish you a great last couple of weeks, and a big happy reunion once you get back to the U.S!

      Aw thank you, Lisa! I miss you and our beautiful runs too but I know there are more awaiting us, either in Stockholm, Texas or somewhere else nice. Good luck with everything and keep in touch! Thanks again for helping to make my trip to Stockholm a really great one.
