The Courage to Start, the Will to Finish
I often "borrow" quotes from others to keep me motivated.
I also watch a lot of videos and see people of all shapes and sizes doing things that I fear.
I love watching the REV3 Age Group Videos because they always show people who are there at the end being supported by the Rev3 Volunteers all the way to the finish. My biggest fear related to doing a 70.3 or 140.6 is that I won't make the cut-off times or that I will be last even if I do. Rev3 makes being last seem OK. I love what Rev3 stands for. The age grouper at the end of this video says that you just have to have the "Courage to start and the will to finish." How awesome!
I'm going to steal his quote and use it as a mantra when I work up to my first 70.3.
I also found this today....
If that guy can do a 70.3.... then there should be no reason why I can't try!
I'm volunteering at the Cedar Point Rev3 event in a few weeks and I fully believe that I will be inspired to do a 70.3 next year. Now I just have to work up the courage to sign up and begin training!!!!
And maybe I should probably try an olympic distance first??????
