My wife (who once worked as an intensive care nurse in London, said in those days not many people survived...and the reason that I did was because of my youth and fitness (at the time) My racing dream may have died that day, but I'm still chasing new dreams, new horizons in my 'little' life…: https://craigswritingjourney.wordpress.com/2014/11/27/climbing-mountains-chasing-dreams-2/ http://inspiringvideo.wordpress.com/2014/11/08/climbing-mountains-chasing-dreams-2/ https://awritersdreams.wordpress.com/2014/11/07/climbing-mountains-chasing-dreams/
