It's A Lonely Road.....

It's A Lonely Road…..

by Jason Bahamundi

It's a lonely road filled with detours and pessimists to derail your progress

It's a lonely road at 4am running by the light of the moon on your own

It's a lonely road when all you can see is your breath and hear the crunch of gravel under your feet

It's a lonely road of sacrifice and humility

It's a lonely road of doubt and guilt

It's a lonely road…..

It's a lonely road until race evening when it's you and the butterflies

It's a lonely road until race morning when it's you and your goals

It's a lonely road until the start gun goes off and the adrenaline rushes in

It's a lonely road until the finish line is in sight

It's a lonely road until you look back and realize you had all you ever needed with you every step of the way

It's a lonely road…..

About the Author:

I grew up in New York and lived there for 34 years until I got divorced and moved 1600 miles to my new home in Texas.  I love New York and miss it but that does not mean that Texas hasn’t been great to me because it has.  It was here that I discovered endurance sports and specifically the sport of triathlon.  Triathlon has given me new life through all the challenges it presents.  I no longer look at life the same way and I can say that is in part due to my endeavor into this sport.
