Curve Balls in Life

I don’t know anyone that has a perfect life. There will be curve balls but it is how you react. Many know about my toxic levels of Vitamin D which is rare. First, I became advocate for my own health which you have to do today. I wanted to know why and what causing high levels.  Instead letting the Nurse Partition-er say it is okay to live that way, I wanted to see a specialist. I wanted to feel better, not feel crappy all the time. I am happy I did. My kidneys were causing it to elevate. My 1.25 kidneys has had problems processing red meats, so now it is all meats. Stopping eating them and feel better. Vitamin D at kidney level is good but the higher level is still high.  Cutting back on endurance events has made my kidneys happy too. It is how react and push forward that your life moves forward.

My glass is half full! Now if I can get faster! 

What is Your Special Place

Cyclists, Runners and Triathletes have special place that they can go to unwind. Last year, when I moved to live on Lake Gardner, I realized I was steps away from running on trails at Woodsom Farm. Today, I just couldn’t do the bike on the trainer but be running outside on this lovely spring day.  When I run to the top of Whittier Hill, I feel I am in the Sound of Music with the views. The pictures below are the views from the top of that hill.

 A place to sit to contemplate or meditate

I am looking forward in a few weeks when the flowers and leaves on the trees.

Let me know what your special place you like to go to contemplate or Zen or meditate.
