Moments ago I entered my credit card number online and
One thing the Wife and I have always done with the kids is stress the point that once something's paid for, you're seeing it through until the end. Want to join soccer/hockey/swimming/karate? No problem - we'll find the cash to make it happen.
But know this - once we've paid for the registration/equipment/whatever, you are going to attend and participate no matter what. The moment you decided that you want to be a part of the team or event, you have an obligation to them (and to yourself) to be there and to try your best every time. (We gave them the exception of "I just lost a limb", but so far no takers.)
If it's good enough for the kids, it's good enough for me.
|Don't let the logo fool you - it's a big island.|
There's no way that I can get out of this without sacrificing a leg or some other equally important appendage. Not that I'd want to - right now I feel great, and except for the fact that I had a dream about hills last night, I'm confident that I'm going to do well.
I guess now I just have to keep training and wait.
Oh yeah - and I have to pay the credit card bill next month, too.
That will probably be more painful than the races.
