DLS- THE LONG JUMP

Son,
I have the letters D L S branded on my right arm as an eternal reminder- “Don’t Lose Sight.” I am proud to say that you need no such reminders. 
You walk a tight rope, balanced between humility and being one of the best at what you do. This week was a reminder that while dedicated to victory, you haven’t lost sight of the fact that you enjoy what you do. 
Picking up a new event in the middle of the season simply because you want to try it, regardless of your other achievements, reminds me that we are here to enjoy life and have fun.
You are so quick, I rarely see your feet touch the ground, it seems natural that you should fly. Propel yourself and let the air carry you. You are weightless in this moment. 
Dad
