I love this little guy. I wish he could stay 5 years old forever.
And I love my husband, (especially when he makes whole wheat bread like this).
And I like who I am. I am comfortable in my skin. I don't need to be better, more of this or of that. I don't need to live life for someone else. I see how fragile, uncertain, and difficult life could be, every single day in my work. I am lucky and I don't take that for granted. Of course at times I wish my legs were smaller, or that the frown line I developed from running hard or worrying over this and that would go away, or that I could move to San Diego, but are these really things to stress about? No, not worth it!
So maybe a goal is to keep life as is, keep up the balance of work, family and running/triathlon. And of course I want those PRs, and I want to move closer to those goals on the right hand side of this blog. But I am in no rush, despite the fact that with every year that passes it will get harder and harder to get faster. I know the body needs time to adjust, and I know you can't push things too much too soon. I really enjoy my training, learning about how my body responds to training, developing a feel for the water, holding a sub 7 pace for longer than I have ever held it before, even spending 3 hours on my trainer early on a Sunday morning. So it's all good over here. I feel I am in the right place!
