Did a loop of Mercer with Tim and Jessie this morning, and that's like chasing two motorcycles. Yikes. It is proof, though, that there's nothing that will push you harder than having a workout partner who can kick your a$$ six ways from Sunday. That's true in life generally. Hopefully you come to a point in your life where you're secure enough to swim with bigger, faster, smarter sharks in all aspects of life. I'm closer to that than I have been in the past. It's humbling because the majority of the time I feel like an idiot, a sloth, or the ugly duckling. But I'm secure with where I stand. If it were any other way, life would be so dull.
