Moderation. Moderation is defined as the avoidance of excess or extremes. For twenty some-odd years, moderation was not something I understood. If I was going to do something, I was going to give 110%, no questions asked. Whether it was on the soccer field or hitting the pavement for a long run, in the classroom or at the office it was always full speed ahead. I always wanted to be involved. I always wanted to excel. I always wanted to give my best effort. I always wanted to be the best. For twenty some-odd years, there were enough hours in the day for that to happen. There was enough time to do everything I wanted. There was enough time to take care of myself, play college soccer, and attend classes. There was enough time to take care of myself, go to work for 8-9 hours a day, and train for marathons. Then one day that all changed. Something happened.
