“So, Have You Recovered From Fitness?”


“So, have you recovered from fitness?” He asked.

The question sort of stunned me…

I had stopped competing, but had I “recovered”?


Part of me still felt like I was competing.

Competing for what, I wasn’t sure.

There were still so many questions I didn’t know the answers to…

What was next?

Was I still relevant?

What would happen if I relaxed?

What would happen if I eased off on my regimens?

Did people still look up to me?

In a sense, I was still covering up the holes that competing put a bandaid over for so long…

That’s when my journey inward began.
