Begin Again

Every accomplishment starts with the decision to try. There is a moment where dreams and fear collide.

 

I float

swift and with grace

No longer hobbling along

I watch my shadow chase

Dreams that once seemed

so out of reach

Now the taste of them

tickle my tongue

and I know they are mine

to devour

For I will not chain

Myself to doubt and fear

again

I run towards endless possibilities

instead of cowering in the corner

I got this

The world is mine.

I give myself permission to fully enjoy tomorrow’s race. My body has not fully recovered from the century ride last week and pushing myself to the point where I feel I should be at my peak would only injure my body and my chances at future events. So, I will be ok with letting people pass me. I will be ok with treading water or floating on my back for a short while. I will be ok with walking a bit to make sure my legs don’t cramp and then to catch my breath and I’ll even take a moment to smell the roses along the way. I’ll be ok with the comments afterwards from those who revelled in dropping me. I’ll be ok with coming in last if need be. This is not my race. This is my journey.

Thank you Derek for the phone call chock full of wisdom. You were right. I lost myself for a moment. It’s good to be back.
