|And then there's me.|
Ryan asked me after the first official training day how I felt about committing to the Dutch Open. I said I was terrified, for the reasons above. Ryan tried to put the competition into perspective for me and said "You're not going to die, no one's going to kill you." I know this, but I think it was too early days for me to feel confident about what I'm doing.
Two weeks into the month and the group of us have drilled techniques and sparred, drilled techniques and sparred, and oh em gee: I thought I was pretty fit but not where sparring is concerned. I barely make it through a full game without feeling like death.
So I've started to run again. Regularly.
Ok, so 3 out of 3 planned runs isn't exactly a habit or anything regular, but it is a major commitment on my behalf because I actually hate running.
|Like, really hate.|
|Let's not talk about how everybody else's mileage nearly demotivated me.|
In the FIRST WEEK, I repeat.
I've felt unbelievably overwhelmed by not only their generosity, but their belief in me. So I just wanted to express my appreciation once more to everyone that has donated, shared our GoFundMe page on FB, Twitter, etc so far for me and my team, and ask that everyone please continue to show support for us.
