A little disappointed of outcome on Saturday...

Thursday, October 11, 2012

Remember the blog I wrote in regards to, "it's a sign"....well, the sign that I spoke of was the meeting with a new triathlon coach last Saturday that never happened. I was a little disappointed when I just happened to pull up my email while sitting at a light on my way to the Starbucks where we were going to have our meeting. There it was, the thing I dreaded, she cancelled on me! emoticon Gracie was not happy at all but thankfully I hadn't gotten but only 10 min from my house when I read it.

At least it wasn't a complete cancellation never to be rescheduled. She claimed she ran some miles that AM and was in a little pain and needed to get home for some meds. I guess I should give her the benefit of the doubt and probably empathize with her a bit as well, since I've been there done that. However, at that moment, I was...hmmmm....shall we say PO'd! I did exactly the opposite of what I'd said in my blog about not getting my hopes up. Well, I got my hopes up and BAM...they were shot down in that very moment.

It's okay now, I've gotten over it, just needed to vent a bit. She emailed me back to reschedule after she returns from the San Francisco Nike's womens race this weekend. Once again, I will not get my hopes up. I will wait for her to email me. I have till January 2013 to start preparing so it's all good!

Thanks for listening on the 10/11/12 day!

    Sorry to hear about you being "stood up"--sometimes we are forced to wait for a much-anticipated event, just so we really appreciate it when it finally occurs. You will so enjoy this new adventure when it happens--keep us posted!

    I like what TRILLIUM22 had to say...great point.
    I can feel for your disappointment though. I hope she is excellent and worth the anticipation.
    I alway believe things happen for a reason, when one door shuts another opens. Have faith!

    Sometimes getting your hopes up and the dashed a couple of times is better than not hoping at all.

    I recently reread the first blog I ever posted. The whole point of it was the need to hope and see the possibility of being something different.

    Can't add a link, but if you want to read it just cut and paste.

    And you can always come to spark and share the disappointment
