"Training is principally an act of faith. The athlete must believe in its efficacy: he must believe that through training he will become fitter and stronger." FRANZ STAMPFL
I guess I have not been myself lately due to the major mood swings that I have encountered with my family. I have gotten word for the past two weeks now that my grandfather, who which is married to my grandmother with the Alzheimer’s Disease (the one I run marathons for) and takes care of my grandmother, he was diagnosed with liver and kidney cancer.
Little words and even actions are rambling through my mind at the moment as I am still shocked and really upset about just how transparent we could have been. What I really mean is that all this time my family has been worried about my grandmother and we never even would have thought there was anything wrong with my grandfather. It’s just so sad. Doctors say that he is on a day to day basis and anything can happen at this point. All I want to do is just run and just deal with it in that way…although now I am handling it in a different manner. Life is tough, life is precious and life is strange in many ways.
Carpe Diem: Live your life to the fullest, don't feel afraid to make mistakes, learn from them and move on. Life is short and you will never know what will happen.
I’m on a bus now…going to go visit my grandfather and hope for the best that everything is ok. That’s all I can do…HOPE
