Before leaving the island I trained some, not as aggressively as I should have and I regret it now.
These past few years I have dealt with several injuries that have kept me from doing what I love, at a level far below my expectations. Swimming, biking, running, at any distance, is a struggle and a feat.
Looking back, I see that my greatest blessings came from taking risks.
After a broken knee cap, running became more difficult. I decided to take a year off from running and opted to do Aquabike.
I could have hit rock bottom, but instead I used exercise and the time for myself as part of my transition into recovery.
