Boxing Club Blues

Things have been a bit strange and difficult at the club where I box. We are suposed to be shutting down for a year for some major construction and renovation. That has been delayed because the closing on the related real estate transaction was supposed to happen on May 7, but the deal has not yet closed. I am not entirely sure what is happening.

Setting up arrangements for our guys to train at another location during that year of construction has not progressed as I had hoped, so I have no clear idea of where we'll be training after another month or so, or even whether we will continue training together as a club. I hope we do, but there is no meaningful assurance that will happen.

I am exploring other gyms where I can train, even if I have to go on my own. For a lot of reasons that I won't explain now (but perhaps I will at some point), this situation has been really emotionally difficult for me. It has been aggravated by the stress of my recent office move and my uncle's illness.

Even so, I am determined to maintain a positive attitude. I will find a way to be at peace with the situation and derive enjoyment from my experiences.
