Getting into Training Gear...

Setting the mentality to get in the game (of life, that is) and JUST DO IT can be hard to do. As you know, I've begun training a bit more intensely for the Death Race and the Ride to Conquer Cancer - half the battle is getting my mind into it and waking up at 5am when the alarm goes... instead of talking myself out of it... and making excuses.

I read this pretty cool book lately, called The Peaceful Warrior by Dan Millman. Its one of those inspirational ones - Im a sucker for that kind of stuff. I saw the movie about 5 years ago - its about a gymnast and how he overcomes many obstacles in life. Its inspiring though. The main characters Will-power is whats admirable. Nike's slogan is a real 'to-the-point' sure way of getting things done - "Just do it". Half of the issue in accomplishing things is just doing it.

Its time to apply some 'just do it' in my life. Sometimes we're our own worst enemy, and sabotage ourselves with that inner voice that says: "you cant do that, you have Crohns", "you need to take care of yourself and rest" , " what if you get sick?" .... But you never know until you try... and most times, its not about doing it perfectly, but just doing it, that matters most.
