A new day has dawn

Something important crossed my mind this morning while I was laying in bed. I was thinking about this weekend's swim, 6 hour ride today (it doesn't help that the pool doesn't open until 1:00 pm so I won't get home until around 8:00 pm) and my half Marathon on Sunday. I have been saying the words, "I have to do this. - I better do this. - I don't want to do this. - I'm tired. - Holy crap! Did you see what Coach Liz has me doing this weekend?" But then it hit me this morning. This is what I do for fun. I have made huge changes in my life to be able to do these things. I stopped drinking 2 years ago. I stopped chewing tobacco 4 years ago. I sold my Harley Davidson so I could afford a REAL Triathlon TT bike. What the hell I'm I bitching about? So training is not always easy, and if it was, I'm not sure I would be happy that I even accomplished anything on that training day. I need to find my passion again. So I told myself today is a new day of having fun again.
