I’m still in the process of deciding what this blog is about.  I like the idea of tortoise athletics: slow and steady wins the race!

I get caught up comparing myself to others–but I’m a late bloomer on a slow path.  I’m a “nontraditional” graduate student getting ready to enter the job market in philosophy.  I’m also an overweight, slow triathlete.  I love racing, but have NO DESIRE (or hope) of winning.  And I’m ultimately cool with that.  In both, it’s about the process for me.  Of being present with the task and going on, even though I’m slow, I’m behind and just not really a competitor.  But, I think I’m probably not alone.
