In seven days it will be the 1-year anniversary of the day that as a member of the 2011 CNN FitNation Six Pack, I swam a mile in the Hudson River, biked 26 miles on the Upper West Side Highway, ran a 10K through Central Park, and then ran, sweaty and jubilant, into the arms of my children and eleven treasured hometown friends at the finish line. It wasn’t a glass-dome-moment (def: you want to put a glass dome over it to preserve it forever); it was a glass-dome-DAY! From the 5 am rain-soaked transition setup to the evening after-party at the Boat Basin Café where I knew that I would be seeing some of my teammates and new-best-friends for the last time, every second of that day is still alive to me.
