The appointment was set. I arrived early trying to miss traffic so I sat in his office lobby just plugging away on my laptop getting work done before the meeting. I had been anticipating this day from the moment I discovered we still weren’t running yet.
The appointment started with me asking “Am I going to get my speed back?”
Coach responded “You will get your aerobic endurance built”
This went back and forth three times. To when he finally said, “have you seen a tugboat?”
“Of course, I have” To which he replied “I built you to be a tugboat, strong!”
So there you have it. I have been build to be strong and steady. Not sure how I feel about being called a tugboat. Not something a girl hears everyday. But I am still hoping some of my speed will come back. It has been a challenging journey but one that I will keep making until the finish line.
