That's SO true, Mary!

And here's one that makes me smile every time I think of my friends:

Friends are like good bras: supportive, hard to find, and close to the heart.

Cheers,

I got an inspiring quote for you...

I used to be kind of nuts myself. Got up at 4:00 to ride the bike. Went to the gym at lunch and after work - and then walked my miles in the evening. I had a job where I worked 50 hours a week and I was a single mom. It slacked off some when I became a caregiver for my paralyzed mom. I don't know how I did it though - - but I'm not going back there - now I have too many other things taking my time - like my just turned 6 YO GS and his softball games!! And I babysit the 4 YO GDs every week at least one day, sometimes more. As you get older other things take over part of your life!! Truthfully - whether you want it or not!!

To God be all glory!

I love to watch these events as my husband used to do alot of triathalons. It amazes me to see the 'clydesdales' - the people who are over 200 pounds compete in these. They are not slow and finish in respectable times.

I can't imagine even in my wildest dreams of doing what they do in a triathlon!

Heh. I have NO idea ... it probably is because I find working out WAY more fun than most other things in my life.

That, and I'm probably some sort of closet athlete. I don't eat like they do, but I loooooove the way my body feels when I really push it.

What can I say? I'm a nerd in more ways than one! :)

Cheers,
Maya

Maya - how do you find time for all the challenges you do?

I saw Jamie Foxx without a shirt - and he talked about his workout - woohoo for that man's body! And I'm trying to do his thing. He gets up and does 10 pushups (mine are on my knees), then he brushes his teeth and does 10 crunches, then he goes to the bathroom and does 10 jumping jacks. As he goes through his daily routine he just breaks for 10 of each of those things. He may do 20 of each in a day - or 100 - according to how many times he can stop and do them but he says it doesn't take time out of his day and he doesn't feel like he is exercising.
Oh - we went to see The Soloist yesterday - wow - great movie!!

To God be all glory!

I just joined the QuickFire Challenge team ... some of you may have received invitations from Kelly, the leader (awesome lady - check out her ticker as well as the team!), or from someone else. It's along the same line as the GOYBs I've been talking about, and it's NOT a very chatty team - just get it done! :)

One thing Kelly does is to put out a new article every single day! That includes a challenge for the day, some variations, and an inspirational video - I think I love the inspirational videos most!

Check out today's video about the IronMan triathlons ... I don't know about you, but those guys inspire me.

www.youtube.com/watch?v=Bh1yMnrby3w

A 2.4 miles swim, a 112 miles bike ride, AND a 26.2 miles run (a full marathon)! All in the space of 17 hours. A total of 140.6 miles in the day!

These are the star athletes ... some day I hope to do HALF as much in a day! :)

Come on, TEAM! Let's ROCK this weekend!

Cheers,
Maya
