Don't always like what I read

even though I know it has merit. A snipit from a horoscope. Yes, a horoscope.

"Some people you love simply aren't going to be the best for you. There's no point in chasing what isn't going to happen. Be as free and independent today as possible. You can stand on your own with confidence. Find excuses to celebrate with those you like best."
Doesn't the last sentence seem to contradict the first? rationalizing 
Ladies Monday Nite ride happened last night. No rain! I rode my SS and only 2 other women rode, fast women. I tried to hang on. But lack of fitness and the 20 cog whooped my butt on hills.We met up with another meetup group and finished out our ride with them. Mowed grass just now. Think I'll go "run". More like a hike. It's hot out. 4 more days left til No Beer August is over. Fingers feel better but left thumb is worse than ever. Hope to make CX practice again tomorrow. see how that goes.

that I can start over again with riding and training. Seems this year has seen many attempts. But this is life

Also grateful for friends, too many to count. Some closer than others and this is good. 

Watched several friends become Ironmen today or repeat the effort.Some  several times over. I admire their dedication. not sure it's it me though. 

I am proud to know these people. Grateful they are part if my life. 

But for the record many other friends are just as amazing for all they do, whether its endurance sports, charity work or dedicated parents and caregivers.  

I am truly rich. and grateful.
