My Old Friend I Just Met

My Old Friend I Just Met.

One of us just ran a marathon.

One of us did not.

I will leave that up to you to figure out.

Irish Chatter

One humongous world

Made smaller

With words

That bring people together.

Thank you internet

For being a tool of compassion





People are really as good as you imagine they are.

    i love your last line – so true )


  2. Great photo Colleen! You are right, people are as good as you imagine them to be.


  3. I don’t know Colleen. He looks a lot more relaxed than you. And the collared shirt…all wrong for a marathon. No, I know I’m a genius.

    Was it the person behind you both? Bawhaha!

    Very true, and a lovely place it can be. 🙂


  6. Hmm that’s a thought, I’m not sure. Loved your words 😊

    Oh, how wonderful!

    I’ve met a lot of online friends over the years and have only had one negative experience. I truly believe in your last line. ❤

    hhmmm, not a bead of sweat on either of you – I think whichever one of you ran that marathon, ran it very, very slowly 😆

    Ran the marathon. I’ll take my bet and put it on… your friend. For no other reason but the fact that you have a blog and apart from life on your bike I’ve never heard you mention running.


  10. I LOVE that you and Jim met in person Colleen and I love the way you describe this blessing! ❤

    I like Diana’s word above — a blessing. Meeting Colleen and husband David was a wonderful conclusion to a great marathon weekend with my Michelle and my son Dan. I guess we do owe it to technology in general and WordPress in particular for bringing us together. Colleen and David are every bit as nice as I expected. Life can be very, very good when you hang out with very, very good people. Cheers!

    Jim looks like a runner, you look like a multi-talented biker, social worker/ counselor, guitarist, artist,. . . Etc. and a great friend! You look so happy and it is nice to find out those you had high expectations of, turn out to be every bit as special as you imagined. Congratulations for running the Columbus Marathon, Jim! (and family, too ) 🙂

  15. It seems that both of you had a nice experience Colleen 😀
