It’s T-5 days until I run my next race: The Tucson Marathon. I’m excited.
Each marathon training teaches me some new life lessons. While I’ve trained for Tucson I’ve mastered the art of surrender and when it’s simply time to let things percolate until you’re ready to “wake up and smell The Consciousness.”
Now I’m ready to go after what I want with the ferocity of a tigress ..
Perhaps that’s why we face tough or unexpected challenges in life? So that we can use them to define us, not break us.
Last month, for example. someone hacked this blog and website and it took me some valuable technological time to recover from that. The clean up I had to do was a fitting twist to the kind or crazy, strange, unexpected year I experienced in 2013. I won’t bore you with mundane details but I will say this: I could have choose to let some events beat me to a pulp. I didn’t. I’m still standing, and I’ve bounced back better, stronger, and happier.
I plan to run a solid race at Tucson. I’ve followed Hansons for my marathon training. It has gone well. Whatever comes on Sunday I’ll hold my head high.
I’ll post more in the coming days.
Let the tigress spring forth …
