"What Doesn't Kill You ..."
Monday, November 10, 2014
On Saturday afternoon, I went to TriRock Clearwater Triathlon Packet Pickup. I came home and started my Pre-Tri Prep, dress rehearsing my Transition on my living room floor. During the day, I was not feeling 100% due to a permanent condition I thought I had control over. Reality check! It started to weigh on my mind. I couldn't sleep that evening.
At 2:00am Sunday morning, I had to make a very difficult decision. It was extremely hard to accept but it was the right thing to do. I had based it on past discussion with my training partners, experience, and reason. I also have the highest respect for the challenges of a Triathlon.
This morning, I have no regrets as I will race another day! I don't accept excuses or failure. I know now it was neither. A definition of common sense is "...good sense and sound judgment in practical matters." I also realized my priorities to my family.
I am stronger today because of the decisions I made. Stay strong, stay focused, and be well.
