|PROOF I may not be that smart!|
I was barely able to run the month of August, which hindered my last attempt of the year of setting a new personal best in the marathon. I then went right into my long-distance training for my 202 miler, which came and went successfully (more so that I could have ever hoped.) Next thing I know, it is August and it has been a complete year since that injury.
Well, the shoulder still pops up a little bit and every once in a while in the shower the soap hits that bump and goes flying. But it the bump is no where near as big. Back in May I decided I wanted to start supplementing my running so I took back to the pool for the first time in months. The shoulder held up great, surprising even me. It was so good that it helped fuel the fire of me wanting to get into triathlons.
|Kept tiny so you needn't look at the body fat.|
Now, one year later, my life is taking off in a different direction. I will still be running quite a great deal and have many more grandiose plans in store but with my partnership with KSwiss I expect to take on triathlons full steam ahead and be very successful in doing so.
|Yes, my arm was yellow.|
But I kept my chin up. I have learned so much from so many other people who themselves have had to deal with tough times that I refused to be beaten. Sure I was upset and had a little bit of the "why me?" syndrome. Yet, I pushed forward. One year later, with setbacks galore, I am on the cusp of taking my life in a brand new and exciting direction. I only got here by putting one foot in front of the other and continuing to move onward with the dreams I have regardless of the circumstances around me.
It's the only way I know how to function.
