It’s not where I want to be. It’s not where I want to sit. But it’s where I’m at.
I train. I hit the gym to supplement. I run even if I hate it sometimes. I bring my brand of enthusiasm. I am committed. I’m not the strongest or fastest. But I put in my part and my piece.
But somehow reserve remains my place in the dragon boat universe.
Just putting it out there because one day I hope to look back at this blog entry and laugh at it. I’ll shut up and continue training. Cutting off everything that takes me off of training.
Kaya ko ‘to!
THE BEST THING I OVERHEARD DURING THE RACE THIS PAST WEEKEND WAS “RUN YOUR OWN RACE”. THE COXSWAIN OF A NEIGHBOURING BOAT AT THE STARTING LINE SAID THIS TO HIS TEAMMATES.
RUN YOUR OWN RACE, GEORGE.
And not literally of course because it’s a team sport. But the idea that you are competing against all the doubt that builds up inside of yourself. 🙂
