Lake Mead. What an interesting place. Nothing but rock and a little scrub but then all that water because of the Hoover Dam. Did you know it took 6 years for Lake Mead to fill up?
It's hard to get a good picture of Hoover Dam so here is a pic of us inside the Dam during the Dam Tour (as they called it)
On the subject of endurance, I need to learn and work more on nutrition. I had no nutrition plan which is a part of the problem I had last Sunday. Not that I am not more than happy with how I did. Just trying to figure things out.
Regarding my last post. Just so it's clear, I am more than over my childhood. I do not have issues with self image or thinking i'm no good at anything, etc. It's just that I realized that I have never taken further steps to not only change from having negative thoughts about myself but to actually be proud of who I am, what I do, etc. All these years, I have been in this "in between" place of non-negativity but not taking that extra step to being proud. This past year has forced a change in that. I just have to stop being dismissive of what I accomplish. "It's only 13.1, others run 26.2", "I did it but I should have done it faster, etc"
See, when others do it, I am proud of them. Not so much me.
I'll work on it.
After all, it's not what you do with your life. It's what you do with what you got! (poor english on purpose)
