18 for Chloe

Over the weekend I received some terrible news; a good friend of mine had a baby girl and lost her due to complications during delivery. We are truly devastated and heart-broken by this loss.

I will be attending the service this afternoon, so today I dedicated my MWMLR to angel baby Chloe.

18.0KM/11.2mi - 1:41:42 - 5:38/KM = 9:06/mi


Your good thoughts and prayers for the family during this difficult time would be appreciated; it is going to be a very sad day with many more to follow.
