A Hallmark Moment

"It's not about how well you do...it's about how hard you try and what kind of a person you are. And there are many things we go through, and there are many things we will triumph over...and there will be times when you'll fall down. But there will be more times when you pull through. And you will find greatness in your life. And you will keep getting stronger every second of it."

I received these words on a card from my good, no, make that great friend Morgan. I feel that this is a perfect sentiment for me right now and I know it will ring true with a lot of you as well.

Life and racing really are about surviving and ultimately dealing with the highs and lows that are handed to you. How we deal with the lows truly exhibit the strength of character each one of us possess.

As I get closer to the Miami Marathon I'm reminding myself that it is just a race and while I want to do well, I also want to have fun and enjoy the ride. Which is ultimately, a perfect metaphor for living life.

Happy Friday friends. Enjoy the ride.

This is the race of your life! You have to give it 110% until you can't give anymore! If it was easy, everyone would do it. Was it over when the Germans bombed Pearl Harbor?

There is no doubt that you will do well and when you cross that finish line you will look back on all the training and the race and smile.

That is the beauty of pushing yourself to reach just slightly out of reach goals. You get better and when you analyze that you will know you got better and thus know that you had fun and enjoyed the ride.
