The (Painful) Journey

I did it yesterday

I turned in my Celebrex prescription.  Thirty days.  One 200mg capsule per day.  It’s a hard reality to swallow.

Know why people take Celebrex?

Because something ain’t right.

Something isn’t right, and I hope and pray that the prescription, my hard work, and God’s grace will remedy the pain in my left heel.

After 20 months of dedicated effort to heal plantar fasciitis in my right fool, it’s has shown it’s hideous face in my left heel.  Totally caught me off-guard.

What have I learned from this?

What does anyone learn from disappointing and potentially serious setbacks?

Some of you already know I’ve already been on a decade long journey to battle high cholesterol.  And on this journey, through incredible effort and dedication, I’ve discovered that hard work, over time, can equal extraordinary results.

I mean, who doesn’t know this already?  It’s a BFO, a blinding flash of the obvious.  With a catch.

The catch is most of us know this on paper, but few ever actually carry it out in a real life, personal example.

I’m on the verge this year to compete in the 2009 Master’s Track & Field World Championships in Lahti, Finland english.wma2009.org/

The other BFO, for me, in all of this? It ain’t about the World Championships. It’s about seeing our son graduate from High School in ten years. I’ll be 60, my wife, 61. Long life is hereditary on her side. Mine, not so much.

Make it a GREAT day, because if you don’t, who will? 🙂
