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!!
