I started training for the sprint triathlon & I’m terrified that I’m going to fail.
Despite being athletic the majority of my life, I’ve never seen myself as fit or particularly strong. I’m tall & uncomfortable in my skin & still feel like I’m 16 years old, completely out of place. I’m simply more comfortable behind a book than I am in running shoes.
But I like being on the trails at work. There’s not a soul out here but me & the grey clouds & that hill that I just ran up.
The trees feel huge when I sit down to stretch & I think about how I was just denied a private insurance policy again & that feels overwhelmingly huge, too.
