The power of just showing up.

Here's a pretty weird and surreal story. 

So as some people may know I am off to Kazakhstan in a couple of weeks to compete for GB. 

However, when the initial trials where held I was living in NYC - so I couldn't make them. 

I emailed the coaches to explain the situation. They were cool. 

But, I had to show up to the last selection try-out. 

I did. 

I made the team. If I didn't show up I wouldn't be off to the once in a lifetime opportunity to represent the country on the world stage. 

I didn't think I'd make the team or was at the standard at the time. 

But, I showed up.
