|black (bad experience) + white (good experience) = Panda|
I am still going to participate in the race and I have been doing a lot of planning. I studied the map, I planned my nutrition and told my crew what I need from each of them. I am looking forward to see how this race unfold.
This whole getting hurt thing impact me mentally more than anything else. As illustrated on the picture about. If I only focus on the negative and question why things happen the way they did, I will only let this experience define who I am. If I try to brush off the whole thing, I will not learn anything either. But if I learn from this bad experience, then I am growing... and I become a panda. With anything in life, we cannot focus on only the good nor the bad. Treasure the good, learn from the bad, and let these experience help you grow as a person. It's easy for me to say all these but it's still suck. Who wants to get hurt? But things happen for a reason and you just need to deal with it. We'll see what happen in a few weeks. As long as I follow my believe, I will learn something more. Finish or not, it will make me a stronger panda.
