    I love this, we are responsible for our own happiness, we should not sit around and wait for someone to do if for us, especially when we know they can't or won't.
I think I will plan something for mothers day, not sure what yet. Thank you for the idea, and Happy Mother's Day to you. emoticon

    I agree completely, as anyone should. Of course Mother's day doesn't really relate to me, but being a single father, Father's day is right around the corner! Obviously the message goes beyond any commercially created holiday, but these holidays are a great time to remind people to let themselves just enjoy being alive.

Conquer Your Doubt Demons

Tuesday, September 24, 2013

An excerpt from The Competitor in Me

The moment I had imagined for the last two years was now reality. There was so much joy and pride in my Ironman moment. All of the obstacles, being too sick to race in 2006, the drama, the injuries, the cup bags tied around my leg…none of it mattered now. I conquered my doubt demons which meant that I conquered myself for two years plus 140.6 miles. The glory was mine for a shining moment.

Running over the finish line, I pointed both hands to the camera and said “you.” Of course no one heard my wishes for Kathy but that didn’t matter. She was in my heart and in this finish moment forever. In case you’re wondering, I didn’t cry. Though happiness was the emotion of the moment, there was so much exhilaration mixed into the experience. Besides, stopping felt so good, I couldn’t cry.

    I think I would have been crying long before I ever traveled 140.6 miles. I probably would have tried to curl into the fetal position during the swim... that probably wouldn't bode well at all.
