Man oh man, I thought I’d be posting a Latest and Greatest fitness exercise post today, but I’ve changed my mind. I’ll save that for later this week.
You see, this past weekend, I was at it again.
Traveling to a race to be support my husband. A weekend that tended to be more SHERPA work than play, but OH SO worth it. After 6 years of ups and downs and chasing this dream with my husband, my hopes always seem to remain high, and my passion to be there by his side remains high too (corny cotter alert).
Even with hotel mishaps
Even with Bike damage done while traveling
Even with feeling a bit tired
There’s something about Clinging to that hope that gives us peace and purpose when chasing this dream. Not to mention a WHOLE new PERSPECTIVE to life around us.
But I will admit, I (we) grow tired of not knowing where this chase is going. Or if we will ever “catch” it.
It’s like running a marathon (or any race really). You start off fresh, energetic, and well fueled. Then mile after mile your body starts to fade, you bonk, and question why the heck you are running this in the first place. Am I right?
But then….. here comes the second wind, coming from deep deep within!
And you finish, PR or NOT you finish and you SHOULD feel proud.
I’d say that’s where we are, taking chances on that second wind.
I know it’s in there. I (we) can feel that bit of energy coming back and we know God has a plan for us. Even if it’s just to finish out the season, the year, with hope and gratitude.
And you know what?
We’ll take it, and run with it.
Have a Marvelous Motivation Monday!
