I Am...

While at therapy on Wednesday... the day after getting released as an outpatient... a question asked of me by the group therapist was dawned on me and since then I'm having a hard time coming up with an answer.

The question... who are you????

The answers I've been able to come up with over the past few days have been a few...

An IRONMAN... and hell yeah I'm proud of it
A triathlete
A twin sister
A daughter
A friend

But what else... what else am I? I am needing to discover who I am to help me come to the realization that I am a good person... becuase right now i'm not seeing it! Please help me add to this list... thanks :)
More to come...

Don't let predefined lables dictate who you are or have to be. You're simply UntPawGal02 (insert real name here). You're made up of a gazillion things - like being an Ironman, or like being a sister. But you're also someone who enjoys going to the beach to play in the sand, someone who enjoys riding on the bike in the summer heat. You're a FRIEND to a gazillion people you've never met on the Internet, and even more to people you have met.

As for 'Update' - we all care, otherwise we wouldn't be here, right? We care even more about you as a person and your progress than about how much ass you'll be kicking next weekend in that Sprint Tri. Tri's and running are important - but at the end of the day, if you're not happy it doesn't matter how well you do.

However, in the mean go out there and kick a lot of ass. ;)

I second Rainmaker's comments. As the late, great running philospher George Sheehan used to say, each of us is an experiment of one. We travel through life on this great rock doing the best we can with what we have. Sometimes we stumble and often times we soar, and our family, friends, and the world are a bit better of that you are here among us.
