*"She’s an athlete. She excels at charging at obstacles and past them."
In this NPR story yesterday “Cancer Leads Athlete To Tough Choice”, the reporter's closing words spoke to my heart:
"She’s an athlete. She excels at charging at obstacles and past them.”
As I rediscover my outer athlete (Sprint Triathlete at age 60), my inner athlete has re-emerged, too. An unexpected bonus!
Qualities and capacities emerge, get honed, re-emerge: The ability to focus on what is important. The ability to pace myself. The ability to gauge and direct goals and milestones. The ability to literally crash my bike and get up again. The ability to help my body and mind re-heal and re-focus. The ability to cross the finish line, competing only with myself.
May we all find our inner athlete today.
Love to hear your thoughts.
