Friday night one of my good friends was hit by a car while hailing a cab outside a bar a few blocks away from my apartment. She’s going to be fine (thank goodness) but the whole thing was really scary- a few of our other friends witnessed it and she has a long road to recovery ahead of her.
Things like this always make you think- it’s amazing the amount of support she’s had, and will continue to have, from our group of friends. Watching our friends rally around her makes me realize just how lucky I am to roll with such a great group of ladies.
Hearing her talk about her recovery plan and timeline also just makes me incredibly grateful for my health. Tomorrow morning when I get up for my marathon training run I’m going to focus on how lucky I am to be able to run 9 miles rather than thinking about how hard it is.
It also makes you think about how quickly things can change- the outcome of the accident could have been so different. It is also something that could happen to any of us at any point in time.
Scary, thought provoking stuff for sure.
