Lane 8 update, Sunday morning.
I’m humbled by my own perseverance.
The hamstring strain from the Writer’s Retreat ten days ago, is still nagging me, and stifling the training intensity.
In a perfect world, where I’m at now, speed wise, is where I thought I’d be six months ago.
Perhaps this is a blessing for a reason I can’t comprehend. I’m sure it is. However, it currently feels like a big embarrassment.
What I’m the most grateful for though, is the gift of decision making. I had to commit to Finland, or let it go. When I committed back in May, I took a huge risk.
But the risk to not commit, would have been greater, I believe. Regret is a dangerous thing, especially at mid-life.
My Family understands this. It’s a great lesson our son is learning – about life, risk, regrets, goals, purpose, planning, balance, Family, etc.
While the trip is expensive in time and money, what we are learning as a Family – priceless.
