Ohhh, if there's one thing I hang onto,
That gets me through the night.
I ain't gonna do what I don't want to,
I'm gonna live my life.
Shining like a diamond, rolling with the dice,
Standing on the ledge, I show the wind how to fly.
When the world gets in my face,
I say, Have A Nice Day.
Have A Nice Day.
Have a Nice Day - Bon Jovi
First challenge is 7 days off... making sure that I’m registered for the race. Sometimes I’m amazed how life revolves around those little things that at the time seem like the biggest things ever.
Today I finally got my finisher’s medal from Augusta 70.3. Apparently they ran out of medals before they ran out of people finishing the race 🙂
It came in at a good time as I was wavering whether to stay on the team or to just go solo and hire a trainer to see if I can really do it. I'm also having to accept the fact that being a perfectionist is not really going to help this time around... Only thing that'll actually work is busting my ass off.
I have to keep reminding myself why I decided to do this. The people that have impacted my life and those whose company I treasure more than I thought I would.
One of the things I'm doing when in California is to get my race mementos, a cork board and something to attach the board to a wall in my home office. You never realize how important those things are until you need the extra motivation.
I'm also reminded of the people whom I've met along the way and the lessons they have taught me. We must find a cure and the time to do it is now!
You are blessed. You are healthy. You have disposable income enough that you can afford the cost of your hobbies. You have people who will support your efforts. You have the passion for what you do and the causes that you fight and advocate for.
IM Arizona is the first... how many more will come? Only time will tell.
