I usually try not to be introspective in my blog, but just this once I have to express my “feelings”. The title of this post refers to a biblical scripture my grandmother would remind me of in hard times. Psalms 30:5 says, in part, that “…weeping may endure for a night, but joy cometh in the morning.” Last week was a serious challenge for me; some outside factors negatively affected my training. We all like to feel in control of what goes on in our lives, but sometimes there are surprises, curveballs, and unforeseen events that can misconstrue our paths. You could currently characterize my training as off-track (11/14/07-11/21/07), HOWEVER I will be taking a day off to spend time with my family and friends (and Leslie). After that I will return to Champaign paying special attention to getting back on-track. Joy will soon follow.
