Why are they talking about me in that song?

Have you ever heard a song and right off the bat it's like hey that song is me. I could have wrote it.

As I kept on listening I heard this little voice sing:
♫ ....but before I give up,
        before I give in,
        I look to my friends in the stars,
        and he said
        you gotta go
        you gotta get up and go
        before you get anywhere ... ♫

Tears. Yeah I am pretty emotional like that but I was crying! The song was speaking to me. Last week I was sick, I missed another swim practice and had absolutely no motivation. I email my mentor and said you know maybe this isn't the best time for me. I mean seriously what am I doing here. I'm no 'real' triathlete. I don't care about PRing. I care about crossing that finish line. After my injuries last year I kind of lost hope in myself. What am I trying to prove?

That is when all my crazy emotions hit me. As the song says "I mess up, I haven't done my best..."  But in the words of bucket "I am not giving up." 

I'm still in training, Training for Super Hero Cancer Fighter Status. 


  1. Remember this!!!! Time to revisit this song.

    1. Mery - Thanks for pointing this out to me. After my doctor visit today i'm all kinds of emotional.
