A friend once said that all good sports are weather dependent. Never more true than when you are leaving to go to the drop zone at 5am.
It could be worse. I could be leaving to record lectures for an online course the way that I have been for the last 8 days.
In fact I consider it a privilege to be able to go up and do some work at something I love. Sure I love teaching marketing and research but I love Skydiving.
How good can it be to be paid to teach something that you don't just love but live?
So as we say let's get the dustbuster out and get the sand out of my undies, take a spoon of cement and HTFU.
It'll be a hot day today and all the jumping will be done by 11 a.m.
But a morning of jumping that you miss out on is a morning of jumping you will never ever get the chance to do it again.
