There is Always Another Chance

If you have made mistakes, there is always another chance for you. You may have a fresh start any moment you choose, for this thing we call "failure" is not the falling down, but the staying down.

Andy had a tough run yesterday but hung in there. I ran 11 miles of the trail and it was beautiful. I got to work at the one and only aid station that all the 50k runners past through 4 times. I like being able to give back and help at a race. The runners were lucky the weather was windy and cool. They were lucky it didn't rain.

The Past...
Rash decisions or actions undertaken without forethought could result in a dead-end. Don’t just blindly forge ahead. Re-examine how you have dealt with situations in the past, they may not be the way to deal with things now. Perhaps new thinking, or a new way of doing things, is what is called for now. In spite of everything you will learn from your experience and shake off those blocks or obstacles. Sometimes you need more perspective so stand back and take a second look.

It was really nice meeting you and Andy at Starbucks in Los Osos before the race. Sorry you were sick but I'm glad you were able to get out on the trails and we really appreciate the help at the aid station. It was a beautiful, challenging day.
