Earlier today I was discussing my current running obsession with a friend. I was explaining to him of my goal to run the NYC marathon, and how I have already run my first race.
He said to me that he was surprised, because he did not quite see me as a runner. I asked why.
He then reminded me of a little story I had forgotten about.
We both play softball for the company team, which is actually how we originally met each other four years ago. Well, those several years ago I was quite unfit and about thirty pounds heavier. I was a great batter, good fielder, but my base running left something to be desired.
Specifically we refer to the one time I hit a solid line drive to left field - and the LEFT FIELDER threw me out at FIRST BASE.
This event was embarrassing when it happened, and remains a point of shame in my portfolio. I believe in taking your faults in pride, and can laugh at myself. In fact, I poke fun at my self fairly often. When this one comes up, I actually wince a little.
It’s a good thing to keep my feet on the ground though. A little humility never hurt anyone. :)
