As I continue to challenge my fatigue, try to discover the underlying cause, I thought it might help if I travelled back in time. Back to a time when I was one of the greatest athletes in the world you have never heard of.
Oh yeah, a bit of reminiscing, way, way back in time, back to the early 80's. And I mean the early 1980's.
I was a five pin bowling star. A game rather unique to Canada. A game that takes some adjustment if you are used to ten pin bowling. You try five pin bowling after ten pin bowling and five pin makes you feel like you are in some kind of a marbles competition.

I realise it's difficult to see, but this is the trophy I received for being part of the Varsity Ridge, Vancouver Bowling champs, 1980-81. This brings back some fond memories and will be a catalyst as I continue to battle this chronic fatigue.
I recall the first time I went five pin bowling. I was about fourteen. The person trying to teach me told me to, "Try to avoid getting gutter balls!" I was curious about that statement. I had a very long shower when I went home.
