"Stronger, Higher, Faster!"

Sunday, July 29, 2012

I am in awe of the Olympic athletes. The training regimen to which they submit in order to compete at that level is fantastic! I question whether it is fair to ask a teenager to give up their teen years to be able to compete at this level but it would be impossible to maintain the training discipline unless you truly loved your sport.

    I love this. I blogged on it a few years ago on WW and again on here earlier this year. So, this brings the question - how badly do I want this? And what, exactly, do I want?

    Hmm....sometimes doesn't feel like it @ the time you're trying to deal with the wall, but it DOES have a way of motivating if you want it badly enough!

Courage!

Thursday, July 26, 2012

Courage is not the towering oak that sees storms come and go; it is the fragile blossom that opens in the snow.

Courage is no9t bte lack of fear, courage is being scared as Hell and saddling up anyway.

Persistence!
