I showed up at the track to do speed work..and as soon as dad said, "lets go". I was shocked to hear myself tell him that I wasn't up to speed work. I needed a nice little "thinking run" at the track where all I had to think about was "left, right, left breathe, right, blink, left, right...". It was so nice. Dad let me violate our "no complaining until after the first mile" rule which was very gracious of him. He listened to me vent about wanting to step in and take the bull by its horns with some things...and then reminded me of the importance of finding my OWN vision and how to apply it. Apparently that's much more important than stressing over a business card---who knew :-) Dad is so easy going...he's so calm, so deliberate and thoughtful. These are attributes that I admire in my dad...and ones that didn't really get passed on to me. I like order...I like predictability...I love progress that is tangible so I tend to put pressure on small things (ie-business cards). I saw yesterday why dad and I work so well together. I am convinced that we could win Amazing Race...hum....what's that prize package worth again?
So, before I go any further....
Please check out my new blog:
I'll still be posting on this blog all my personal things, but check out Black Daffodil Films for my creative projects. My hope is over then next few months, I'll be able to piggyback a non-profit onto Black Daffodil--one that involves two of my passions, running AND film! YAY!
