Yesterday, two firefighters from LA County FD died while trying to escape the raging fire. Hearing this kind of news is especially hard because Zac is working toward becoming a firefighter/paramedic. Just today, I learned that one of the fallen firefighters left behind a pregnant wife whom is only weeks away from giving birth to their first child. This breaks my heart so much. I can’t fathom what she is going through and I pray that she has the strength and support she needs at this time.
This being said, I find it hard to complain about the smoke from the fire now. The only affect it has on me is that I can’t run outside. How selfish of me and I to complain about this when one lady lost her husband and is about to give birth.
Today, I ran 7 miles in 61 minutes on the treadmill at the gym.
