30 miles til 30-week 6 recap (REALLY LATE)
Wednesday, August 08, 2012
I do not remember watching the Olympics as a child. My son is fascinated, as I am, with the swimming.
Maybe, because he cannot swim, he thinks they are simply better than him. Maybe it is because they are better than ANYONE I KNOW!
I was in the pool at my mom's house and I clumsily swam from one side to the other and DS exclaimed, "You should be in the Olympics!!"
I smiled at his enthusiasm, and then wondered why I don't hold myself to higher standards?
Are these athletes born with superior genes?
They work hard, train hard, they WANT TO BE THE BEST!!!
Do I want to be the best? Am I struggling to achieve greatness or good enough-ness?
What I learned in week 6
1) I learned that we should all have dreams of being in the olympics!
2) I learned that our children see us as heroes-act like one!
3) I learned wearing a skirt keeps me from getting extra fitness!
