Anyway, this weekend was the best kind of weekend to remedy my homesickness, because we watched The World Triathlon Series. Our goal on Saturday was to go paddle boating in the Serpentine in Hyde Park. Upon arriving, we realized that was not going to happen, as this event was taking place in the park. So we changed our plans and ended up staying for a of couple hours to watch these amazing athletes. And we ended up really enjoying the event!
Amazing doesn't even begin to describe these para-athletes we watched, who quickly silenced the whining and complaining in my head. Their grit, perseverance, and dedication to overcome their challenges are truly phenomenal to see. We saw athletes competing who didn't have a limb or their eyesight, and they finished the triathlon! I mean, these are truly truly exceptional people.
And that's the end of my sappiness + woe-is-me post ;).
