The triathlon of Life

Why is it that I can look after my body or my soul or my brain, but not all 3? I can exercise regularly, but then I don’t pray or study. I can pray, but leave out exercise and study. And when I study, everything else falls by the wayside. Developing all three areas creates a balanced person.
Even with triathlon training, I tend to focus on one sport at a time. In summer, I run more. In winter I swim more. And sometimes I bike. But even then, I focus more on running than anything else. It is not until the race is imminent that I really work on putting everything together.
So when will I need all of my life skills? What is the deadline for putting it all together? There is no way to tell. Life is not a one time race that we can train for. Life must be lived daily with as much balance as we can manage.
It is time to work on my balance.
