taking the long way

I guess I've just been reminded in the last few days that the long way has the power to make the race worth running.

Life in the fast lane.

I don't race you. I race me. Oh, wait. Let's be honest. If you come up out of nowhere and try to pass me at the finish line - the race is on.

When did this happen?

There are people who know you better than you know yourself. You know those people, right?

Prior proper planning provides pixie dusted performance
