Aim Higher

Sunday, June 30, 2013

I was feeling mucho stress this morning because everybody and their needs were getting to me something ferocious. I just seemed near-drowning in what everybody else wanted from me. And I had nothing above (it felt like), no pole star to fix my eyes on, by which to navigate myself out.

So, I went to the fire department across the street from me, who-all were out washing down their engine in the dawn. And I invited them all, not only to join my household's Tough Mudder team, but the Firefighter Memorial 5k we're running as our "midpoint" training race...in full bunker gear.

I got their interest, and their permission to bring over a flyer with race deets and contact info, for their break room.

Then I took the Tough Mudder "Screw Calm and Start Training" placard from the front door, and power-screwed that sucker straight into the outside-facing gate. So the firefighters could find us more easier.

And NOW I have something bigger than me, bigger than the needs of the people around me, to motivate me.

It's that much more of a push to keep going when you have a cause. Glad you are using your training for such a great cause.
