Fit Recovery – The Best Moment Award

Running To Her Dreams bestowed upon me The Best Moment Award.  This one comes with a simple set of rules but is heavy on the social implications…

Awarding the people who live in the moment,
the noble who write and capture the best in life,
the bold who reminded us what really mattered –
Savoring the experience of quality time”

The only requirement that I could find (these awards vary) is to post a victory/acceptance speech of some sort (though I’ll nominate a few others later on in the post).  Unfortunately, ex-drunks don’t do victory speeches for we are the lucky lot who understand that ultimately, victory is only achieved when one is fertilizing grass – on the wrong side…  It can seem sad, if you choose to look at it like that – after all, wouldn’t it be nice to be able to say “I’ve made it”?  Well, yes and no, but I don’t think I’m going to get into the philosophical meanderings today…  I’m on vacation and I’m going to be busy having a whole entire day of best moments in about fifteen minutes starting with a bike ride, then the entire day on the lake and then a nice dinner out and an evening of cards.

I will, however, pen a quick acceptance speech.  I accept the Best Moment award on behalf of ex-drunks everywhere who enjoy their new lives one day at a time.  I am not special.  I just don’t want to live in hell any more – and when a person can honestly recall what hell looks like, finding a Best Moment on an otherwise dull day is usually quite easy.

My special nominees: 

The Springfield Cyclist, Tracy Wilkins

Aaron at Steep Climbs

Elisariva

Simone at meltdowntoironman

and Kevin at Cycling in NY

I may do an expanded list in the near future – there are quite a few more who inspire me, but I’ve gotta get rolling folks.
