Fragility & Opportunity
A stomach bug knocked me out last week. It gave me time to reflect on a few things. One – I’m so glad it’s passed now and I can get back to it. Two – it put excuses not to workout in perspective. There are inevitable setbacks we’ll all face, on matter how well prepared we are. I’m especially grateful for the moments where the most important things are going well (like being healthy enough to workout), working hard during those moments to offset the inevitable time we need to step away.
Free lunch shared a story from his past about being sick for years, how discouraged he felt and how we gradually changed his attitude about his situation. Powerful share.
Danish and TaterTot shared great storys about athletes who missed championships because of external forces (like getting tripped or getting covid), accepted their circumstances and used that experience as fuel to get back on it.
My dad (visiting from Bama) joined us for the first time today and left it all on the field. Welcome, Reaper! From your son, Slash.
