A tease for my upcoming essay on complexity in fitness. Please check back this Sunday for the completed essay. In the mean time, here is an excerpt:
4Keeps Part I: My Inner Greed
When I earn something that I want and that I appreciate, it becomes my desire to keep it as long as possible. My favorite shirts, best albums, and even special moments are things I will attempt to hold onto as long as I can. I’m just not good at letting go. My strength, balance, agility, flexibility, and muscle mass are among those things I want to keep until I die. These I get from my daily strength training.
I never took steroids. Not because I was opposed to the use of them, but because I knew I never would have come off of them. Though we’re no longer married, I speak with my ex-wife almost every day – it seems I’m even a hoarder relationships. The thought of giving up something that once belonged to me is just hard to embrace.
Please check back this Sunday for the completed essay. Oh, and there is little nugget from Sweden’s, The Shout Out Louds. Enjoy….
