18 months ago I swam the Colonies Zone Masters Championship in Fairfax VA. I had a very good meet. An enduring memory is as I was packing to leave after my final event I overheard a 30-something guy in the bleachers next to me complaining to his wife or girlfriend about what his times 'should have been.' I couldn't help thinking "If elephants could fly . . ."
Deal with what IS. Try to understand how it happened and what you might learn from it. So much less agita.
We do this to be happier, not distressed or disappointed. The choice is ours to make.
