"It's only after you've lost everything that you're free to do anything." Chuck Pahlaniuk from the book, Fight Club.
I just finished reading this book recommended by a dear friend. It contributed vastly to my already eventful weekend soaked in blood, sweat and tears. It was a simple yet profound statement that posed many points of reflection.
I've lost a lot, maybe almost everything about my old running life but that opened the door to be better and I'm getting in. Now I am free to do anything and I will. I will show up in races whether I am big or small; fast or slow; weak or strong. I will win or lose but will never be defeated.
So please bear with me, I just chose to fight. I chose to be happy :)
