This summer, I waited for a moment when the fog would lift and I would be excited again about training and racing. I waited and waited and it never came. Only after some very difficult gut check moments, was I faced with a choice: either I let go of the past, let go of the disappointment, and commit to bringing quality to the moment, or it's time to move on. The video below is a reflection of the decision I made and the focused enthusiasm that has ensued.
Brings to mind a quote. It's been attributed to many people, so not sure who to give credit:
"Success is not an act of spontaneous combustion. You must set yourself on fire."
I'll be in Ann Arbor hanging with Felice for the next couple weeks and then our group will be shifting back down to Austin, TX to, once again, prepare for Olympic 1x Trials. Still plenty of uncertainty, but we are going full speed ahead with clear eyes about what could happen if the pandemic accelerates again.
Here is the link to the video. Enjoy.
