Was laughing with a good friend
the other day when she asked
why I do all ‘this’ training.
“What are you training for,” she asked.
“I’m on call.”
“What do you mean by that,” she inquired.
Well, I want to be in shape when
I get the urge to do a race or if I get
a call from a friend who wants
to do some kind of fun sport or activity.
I also believe this year has a whole new energy to
it.Â And I want to be on call for what may arise out of the blue.
I want to be the go to guy in
my family for having more energy
and enthusiasm to tackle
any challenge that lies ahead.
I want to be at the head of the pack, not behind.
I can remember a time when I wasn’t.
It was when I was caught off guard
when I got a call out of the blue
(in the off-season) from my strength coach my junior year
“Vince, Jacksonville is here to test you
and some other Juniors in the forty yard dash.”
Oh shit I thought.
Where did that come from.Â I havent even
been practicing that. And what if I run
a shitty time. What the hell do I do.
All these thoughts ran through my head.
I made some poor excuse and just took
the Wonderlick test.
Now, I had this goal to play in the NFL but
I wasnt prepared to deliver at a moments
notice.Â That still haunts me to this day.
And they say you learn from your mistakes.
That was a BIGGIE that eventually did not allow
me to reach my goal.
So now I stay fit cause I like the energy and
wonderful upbeat feelings that stay with me
throughout the day.Â AND…
I’M ON CALL.
I shoulda been a Marine.
Are you fit?
If yes, what do you stay fit for?
(And yes, I’d love to hear with a short post
on my blog.)
If no, when would be a good time to start ‘gettin’ after it?’
How about RIGHT now.
