The run will have to wait if we’re going to pull off this epic adventure

The run will have to wait if we’re going to pull off this epic adventure. Did get a three-mile bike ride to breakfast and back.

Spent this morning assembling the battle plan.

To plan a trip to a popular summer destination with only three days notice is nothing short of everything having to fall into place.

The clock is ticking.

One missing piece and it’s off.

Unplanned Doctor’s visits are simply part of the curve

Dreaming of the worst lane and finishing last

Questioning everything led to the Lane 8 metaphor
Questioning everything led to the Lane 8 metaphor

 

Why would an athlete dream of the worst lane and finishing dead last?

Would you rather be the slowest of the fastest or the fastest of the slowest?

Slowest of the fastest declares you eighth best in the world, if you’re in the finals, at the Masters Track & Field World Championships.

Fastest of the slowest could be at a nursing home.

Finish dead last.

Eighth best in the world.

This is the metaphor and symbolism for this blog – Lane 8 – and life in general.

Every damn day

Teddy Bear at First Starbucks store plague
Some things are easy to do (even ‘necessary’) every damn day

 

Every damn day – that’s what some tee shirts say.

The meaning is profound.

And challenging to live up to.

But not impossible.

When we come to fully realize that everything is a gift, our life is elevated with a sense of deep obligation to nurture our body.

Every damn day.
