In order to spend quality time with my husband I went with him to the Mt. San Antonio College Cross Country Invitational Races. Their school was volunteering to provide medical assistance to injured runners. The medical tent was positioned near the narrow track just before the finish line, where runners are forced to run in almost single file to reach the end of the course.
It was amazing to watch how these high school kids run through rough terrain. There were a lot of hills in the course and the funnel leading to the finish line was a dirt road. They glided over the dirt like a gazelle.
My husband was in his high school's track and field team, he used to run cross-country. He could relate to what these runners were going through, he knew how to coach them so they would recover after the race. I think my husband found one of his passions right there on the field that day. I'm glad he decided to take the course on sports therapy and rehabilitation - being able to help athletes through injuries and towards their dreams of excellence is an admirable profession. There was excitement in his eyes and an inner joy at just being at that event that I did not have the heart to tear him away. He spent the whole day at the races and I think it was good for him.
Are you currently doing what you love to do? Why not? If you think it's too late for you to change your life to pursue your passion - you're wrong! It's never too late! May you find the courage to live your dreams today:)
