In a year where my personal athletic endeavors were put on hold, I reaped the benefits of supporting a new friend to her finish line… sort of like channeling MY athlete self through HER.
My plans for participating in a few cycling and running events were sidelined in 2016 due to an early season bike accident that left me with a severely fractured elbow and injured shoulder. But so what that there was no finish line for me to cross in 2016? Sometimes we athletes need to view these “life events” as a journey similar to training for a competition. How do we endure to get to that "different" finish line of healing or coping?
