I have been out walking a lot lately as we finally have some nice weather. I was thinking a bike ride would be nice. A run would be nice. I mentioned this to my kids. These were things I used to be able to do unassisted; running, biking, rollerblading, and more. For a moment they felt sad. I let them know those were my has-been moments.
Too many of us take our bodies for granted. We sit for hours, or train constantly (me!) without fully contemplating the stress our lifestyle places on our bodies.
Last March if you said I would be where I am today..I would have laughed - never going to happen…ME in a commercial..
Bowflex flying ME, Lorne & Penn to LA for 5 days….never going to happen…..
WELL it is -- next week and I'm SOOOOO excited!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I cannot imagine being an athlete without my children to shape who I am. They challenge aspects of my training; patience, being able to adapt on the fly, and looking deep into why I train. My oldest daughter wrote an English piece on courage, it brought tears to my eyes because I did not realize she saw me that way.
