I have really had a hard time figuring out why people that don't exercise try to minimize the goals of people that have big goals. I wish I wouldn't give a rats a$$ about it, but it does bug me.
My goals for this year include:
A 5k race
An adventure race
Maybe an adventure camp
Climbing the Sears Tower stairs in the fall
Lose 15 lbs to get to my goal
I listen to some people at work demean this girl at our hospital that is climbing the Hancock Tower for Cancer. Saying "how crazy she is and how stupid that goal is". I spoke up for her and said "why is trying something new and seeing how far you can push yourself stupid?"
It boiled down to the fact that they could not do the task themselves and they were not wanting to admit this.
My philosophy is: If you don't try it, you will never know. Also, if you can't finish, it's OK, you tried to do the challenge and that is all that matters.
I guess I am going to have to learn to share my goals with people that have like goals. I also am going to have to learn not to let what other think slow my journey down.
I feel I only have one life to live and I better get living it while I have some of my younger years left.
Here are some of my goals for the future at some point:
White water rafting
Walking to the bottom of the Grand Canyon
Do an adventure race in a different area of the country
Hiking in the mountains
It is a good start on a list, I guess I could call it my "Bucket List" Love that movie!
