There will be a lot of firsts to come in the next several weeks as I get back to doing things that were once a normal and regular part of my life, so much so that I never really gave them any thought. The big accomplishment today was going up and down and entire flight of stairs without my crutches for the first time. I did so one step and one foot at a time, but I made it all the way up and down without assistance or pain.
“One step, one foot at a time” is going to be my motto for a while. I’ll admit there are times when I want to fast forward two months and be back into Ironman training again just to get back to what life was like before all this happened, but there are lessons to learn along the way…lessons I can only learn if I take it step by step and day by day.
