day 607 – bedtime

image

sleeping way earlier than my norm today and by that i mean three hours earlier than what i have been getting past two weeks. i guess my body finally decided to crash from over exhaustion and it can no longer take it anymore. poor body is so tight and sore in too many ways even my roller cannot help me. hope i get a well deserved and much needed restful night and able to resume grinding soon

day 498 – catching up to me

image

when was the last time i had a chance to sit down in front of my computer and do nothing?? or that i wasn’t out running around doing stuff and taking care of business?? i don’t ever recalling a particular night like that for the past three months. i am running out of gas, and fatigue is really catching up to me. glad to see that a few things will be off my plate very soon so i may get some much needed personal time and space

day 446 – heading home

image

wrapping up my washington roadtrip with overall team success. can’t get home without paying the peace arch a little visit and of course getting through the long border wait. look forward heading farther down for the next one plus the rest on the list we are eyeing and it may be sooner than i know it. a lot of work and practice to be done if we are aiming for those bigger opens, don’t let it stop

twenties series: [eight] pace

it may sound strange coming from a person whose life runs at the speed similar to the highway traffic where park zones do not exist. i am just at a point in my life where all my commitments and deadlines are happening all at once, and no matter how fast i push myself, i can never fit everything into a my twenty four hour span. i hate to say that all my commitments may not even fit even if i was granted an additional two hours each day. i drive a bmw with a relatively powerful engine, if i was given a race caliber car, it would be scary scene to see how fast my life moves at when i step on that gas pedal. in the past month, i have been running on a full load and tight schedule based on an average of five hours of sleep per night. its a miracle that i am still functioning after several weeks but i am uncertain how long i will be able to hold up. some things has got to change or i won’t be able to keep up with this hectic and crazy lifestyle. with that said, life is not a race to the finish line, learn to slow it down and pace yourself. you will be glad you did because there are many rewards at every stage of life and chances are you may miss it if you speed through everything

day 417 – full day’s worth

image

occupied by a full day of taekwondo which started with an overloaded meeting and ended with another dinner. so many tasks at hand, so many news, so many changes, so many new ideas, so many things tasks left undone. there’s just too much thrown on my plate, i simply don’t have the time to fit all in my already crazy schedule nor the energy to carry the load. i wonder how long i will last before these tasks start spilling over my plate

day 292 – and that’s a wrap

image

in downtown staring up at empire state building as toronto and new york trip comes to a close. wrapping up a trip that had everything from training, stress, madness, pure exhaustion, good times, long drives and abundant unexpected circumstances. good bye toronto and new york, until next time

day 291- longest night on the road

image

leaving town and onto new york right after competition. tried to catch the full moon during our long ride to big apple. one of the most brutal drives ever driving nonstop overnight almost without any sleep and stoppages, talk about red eye drives. no place to stop even if we wanted to because all hotels were filled due to numerous flight cancellations at new jersey airport
