What's the dealio with my heelio?

Well, I think it's official that running season is over for a while and cycling will be curtailed (I'm still climbing the Gavia and pretending to be Hampsten at the '88 Giro though)...

The GOOD NEWS?  Absolutely... I get to focus on my guitar playing.  I said earlier this year that it's EASY to fall into ruts in life and simply repeat the same activities.  The result is that we don't maximize our personal development.  While I don't like being injured, I think this is the perfect opportunity to reflect on my good overall health and the many other outlets for personal growth I can pursue.

Of course, if anyone knows any Ancient Chinese secrets for healing, I'm all ears:-)

I'm frustrated.  I can't seem to overcome some recent injuries and I'm not sure what I'll be doing this Fall (Professionally or Athletically)...  This uncertainty has left me a little bit edgy.

Then, I took a moment and closed my eyes and reflected on the tremendous uncertainty these men felt.  I internalized it, compared it to mine, and then thanked my God that I don't need to face the day ahead that these men did. 

 Additionally, one look at this photo helps me realize that ordinary men are capable of extraordinary things.
