"Well, guess what? It happens to the best of us, and now I find that it can also happen to folks like ME! My precious official Marathon Streak has come to an end. Sob! Got to get a hold of myself. It is not the end of the world, right? Life goes on, right? What do I have to look forward to?"

Plenty! Let me tell you....
