Too Excited

to sleep. I woke up at about 3:30 a.m. thinking about getting a new bicycle. I am really excited about the prospect. I will show up at the bike shop when it opens at 10:00. In the meantime, I will go swimming as the pool opens at 6:00. Then I can take a nap this afternoon, after a good bike ride - I hope.

I have less than three months to train for the triathlon. I am not ready. I am not even on target with my training. But I can get ready. I have to remember that the big lesson learned from my first triathlon was not to take it so seriously. I had trained too hard. My second triathlon was more fun. I am so excited about this one because both my daughters are registered to do it with me.

What has this got to do with recovery from alcoholism? Everything. I get to do things I could only dream of when I was drinking. I was always "gonna" do great things when I was drinking, but somehow, the drinking was all I ever got done.

Good luck with your training and it's just one step after another to the finish line.

Daave - I beg to differ with you. It is not all about you, it is all about ME! OK?

I wish I liked baseball, I used to be a White Sox fan of all things when I lived in Chicago. But I learned to love football and I just don't like baseball anymore. sad. maybe i should try.

I hope you were able to get the bike you wanted. It is about living this program doing the things we never could when we were drinking.
