The Track

When you’re at the starting line, it’s sometimes hard to remember that the track doesn’t just go on and on in a straight line forever—especially when all you can really see from there are the seemingly millions of hurdles that lie in your path. The thing to remember, though, is that a track goes in a circle, which also means that it goes on forever. This could be disheartening, I guess, particularly from the starting gate. But think of it this way: never reaching the end could relieve some of the pressure if you let it. It could help to remind you to even out your stride, or that it’s okay to pull off to the side and rest a bit. And it could also help to know that the hurdle that just knocked you down is going to be there when you come around again to kick it’s ass back and show it who’s boss.

So, maybe crappy Yellowtail Riesling and delicious Whataburger are ahead this lap. But if you won every round, then winning wouldn’t mean very much. And this race isn’t over by a long shot. Get up, dust yourself off, and get back in the goddamn zone.

  1. i guess i could have clarified that i am referring to the metaphorical track—the diet and excercise track and hurdles—and not an actual track.

    but you get it.


  2. Are there taco stands along this track? Today and yesterday have sucked for me! My entire skinnythigh vision has disappeared. Or it’s clouded to the point I can’t find it.

    Starting again, tomorrow.

    Thank you for this.


  3. YES, there are taco stands! you just can’t stop at them on every lap.

    chin up, buttercup. tomorrow is new.
