Okay. So. A few things. Please do not assume you have any understanding of how or why my marriages ended.

Let me take your analogy and run with it. I could train for an IronMan for a decade. I could get to that race, give it all I have and then fall to injury ten miles from the finish line. It wouldn’t mean that my words as an athlete have any less bearing than if I made it the last ten miles.

I put myself back on that couch. I put myself on the injured reserve. There’s a lot of lessons learned and a lot of humility in know your limits. Running ten miles while injured isn’t wise.
