Lane 8 Update

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.
