Thank-You Young The Giant

On Tuesday, Marc sent me an email with the MP3 file for Young The Giant’s song My Body. He also excerpted the following lyrics into the email:

My Body tells me no, but I won’t quit
Cause I want more, cause I want more
My Body tells me no, but I won’t quit
Cause I want more, cause I want more

Marc knew I would see this before hopping on my bike for an early morning tempo ride and then rushing off to the hospital for my weekly iron infusion. Some days this guy of mine is just so smart. The song and lyrics couldn’t have come at a better time. I got through the work-out but let me tell you 200 watts didn’t feel as friendly as it did this time last year. But I did it and got through it.

At the hospital I learned that the new medicine I’m taking is working and the measurable inflammatory responses in my body have dropped significantly and I also learned that I’m still severely anemic. Progress but with still one big barrier to feeling 100 per cent again. As I walked to my car, my eyes started to tear up. I was just so happy that the medicine is working because the alternatives to this medicine would have ended my bike racing career forever…

When I turned on the car, what song was playing on the radio? Yes, you got it My Body by Young The Giant. Funny how things work sometimes. I’m listening to the song now and you can click  here to listen as well.

My Body tells me no, but I won’t quit
Cause I want more, cause I want more
My Body tells me no, but I won’t quit
Cause I want more, cause I want more
