My friend Erika is in Arizona getting ready for her first Ironman!!  I am super excited for her.  As I listen to her journey I get a twinge of jealousy.  For as long as I can remember I've wanted to do an Ironman.  I was thinking about this yesterday and it hit me....Wanting doesn't really get you anywhere.

Erika wanted to do an Ironman.  THEN she came up with a plan and trained her ass off for 40 something weeks.  If she stopped at wanting, she'd be back in Seattle with me.  Anyone can want something.  You need action and commitment to actually get it.  Erika made a commitment and took action.  She is an inspiration.

So yesterday, inspired and intent on action, I got on my bike and rode for 90 minutes.  I will not be afraid to go after what I want!!


  1. Way to go! Erika is so inspiring:) I am always so amazed at the time and effort she has put in for this. SO excited for her!

  2. YAHOO!!!! So excited for you and you WILL get it! If it's Ironman you want, it's Ironman you will have! And I'll help you in any way you would like me to :)
    And thank you so much for your continued support, for getting me through my long training sessions with your texts and keeping me laughing. I truly owe you!
