Lately I find myself daydreaming quite a bit. It started about 2 months during some of my longer rides and runs. I would find myself thinking about that time when did a 16 mile trail run the day after a 100 mile ride and enjoyed every second of it, or the time when I did double time trials up Harding avenue (a 2 mile climb in town) and felt strong. That 120 mile ride I did two summers ago, cruising through the final miles of my ironman in 2015, the time I bounced up the north rim of the Grand Canyon dropping my husband in the process. Those days and workouts that left me feeling exhausted but exhilarated, reaping the benefits of a level of fitness that comes from months upon months of hard work. Also a feeling I have not experienced much in the past year, and an aspect of training and racing that I am currently missing dearly.
It amazes me how God knows exactly what you need, when you need it, and fulfills those needs in creative and unique ways. A little over a week ago, I was desperately in need of a distraction and something to help me pass the days until having surgery on May 1oth (more on that in my next post). Waiting has been hard on me, harder than I anticipated, and I've had a lot of restless nights lying awake thinking about it, praying for rest, peace and patience. Then last week happened. I'm excited to tell you about it!
