Some Encouragement

Just read an awesome article written by my old teammate at Stanford.  Tim was on the team in the mid-90s and was on the national team for many years. I believe he just got his Ph.D from Harvard and is also working there now.

I don’t consider myself to be religious (I’m very spiritual though) but his article gave me some encouragement during my comeback process from my knee injury.  While this injury has been frustrating to deal with, I’m realizing everyday that there’s been a lot of positives and opportunities attached to it.  I’ve also met a lot of supportive people throughout this whole process.

I’m definitely making my way back.  I know that there will be some struggles along the way but it only helps me appreciate all the good things in life, no matter how small, and to not take things for granted.

Anyway please take a look at Tim’s article here: The Olympic Promised Land
