COT: “You don’t need to create a masterpiece every day, just get some oil on the canvas every day.” I have a pretty bad optimistic flair in me. I am extremely arrogant to believe that a smile or a few minutes with another person can change a moment, a day, a life. And I piss people off what I am about to say, because it’s easy to say on a good day and harder to hear or believe when we’re in it.
I like being the SIX. In fact, I think I love it. When I’m in the back of the pack, I’ve nowhere to hide. I’ve spent so much of my life trying to hide and sell a better version of myself to people I’ve just met BUT there’s no amount of clever witty charm is going to cover up that I am flawed man. Physically and emotionally. I can’t fake being faster. So this is who I am AND no one here has EVER shamed me for it.
The more I am the SIX, or just behind some one, I am reminded of the company I keep and where I want to be someday. It’s not hard to imagine the mental image of where I want to be someday when that image is directly in front of me. Running faster than I. Someday, I’ll be running with them. Someday, I’ll be you guys. There are goals there and I see them.
Which leads me to why I really love being the SIX first and foremost, because it reminds of a very simple fact. No matter what I’ve done or left undone up until now…. I showed up today. I am here, I got my shoes on. My clothes. Woke up early and I am here. With you guys. You teach me how to run, how to breathe, how to live a better richer life. And you remind me of what’s most important. Those things outside of myself. If I have to modify every single exercise in warm-a-rama, if nothing else, I am glad I showed up today. Let’s get some oil on that canvas.
