It's amazing how much growth can happen in just one year.....
A baby panda will go from 3 1/2 ounces to over 75 pounds.
A tulip poplar will grow about 18 inches.
Babies will triple their birth weight, grow ten inches, hear/see as well as an adult and start to walk.
These are all very cool facts - and damn, if we really think about how much can happen in the course of a year it's mind blowing.
Really. What were you doing a year ago? Where did you think you're life would be in a year, or two?
We can plan and prepare for what we think we want, but the truth is that life just has a way of happening.
It is such a crazy, sweet and beautiful thing.
BBUUTTTTT what really gets me going right now is that with one year of time, energy,
dedication and training my St. Anthony race time went from a 2:32 and change to a 2:12.
One year. TWENTY FREAKIN' MINUTES.
