The work will wait while you show the child the rainbow,
but the rainbow won't wait while you do the work.”

Actor and playwright Kate Mulvany was just three years old when her parents were told to pick out a coffin for their daughter because she had terminal cancer — and it was all because of a chemical weapon used in the Vietnam War.
I'm pleased Kate Mulvaney is a thriver and achiever.

Today I did part of my fitness assessment.
Instead of doing the 400-meter jog, planned as my 'final burst', for the day I did a timed one-kilometre run.
This was supposed to be timed on a flat surface and done at the same place ever four weeks, and I am in the mountains, there is nowhere flat in Tarra Valley or surroundings, so I took the last timed trial I did as my starting entry level. I recorded 8.8 minutes for 1 kilometre last November, on the flat, pushing myself as hard as I possibly could.
I also did my ‘’how many push ups could I do in one-minute test and I disappointed myself by collapsing in a heap after 15 push ups from the knees and 35 seconds
The caravan step and those adjustable weights were my primary exercise equipment for day two.
