Return of the Mack

Posted on 25 November 2014
Return of the Mack

5,500 Steps

It feels good to be back! I've now conquered 5,500 steps at the AMI stadium challenge - the first event of its kind in New Zealand!  

That Superstar Feeling

The race began as we came out the players tunnel, just like the Ritchie McCaw and the All Blacks! I felt like LeBron James in the new Beats commercial (have you seen it? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YCOgaWSfxxs). Hozier's tune Take Me to Church was playing in my mind, because church was exactly what it felt like. This was was redemption, for I carried up the stairs with me, my burdens of self doubt and regret, and there at the top, I gave them up at the alter. It was self-realisation- don’t believe all the things you tell yourself late at night, relax. Inhale expectations and exhale transformations.

Return of the Mack

After completing three laps going up and down and up and down, I finished with a victory lap around the field. The knees felt great. As I crossed the finish line I felt lighter; the clouds in my mind had cleared and all of the sudden my fears felt silly...I WAS BACK! It feels good to be finishing the year on a high note. It feels good to be back doing something I love. The experience allowed for some reflection on the year. I can now say I’m ready for the new year and the challenges that it will bring.
