When you dream, dream big. As deep as the ocean, as wide as the sky, as far as the sea and as free as the wind.

Can you go for a challenge?
Have you ever wanted to do something really bad but it scared the crap out of you? Jeri wants to do this triathlon with me. Now it comes down to my real commitment. Am I willing to do the work? EE GADS!!! I don't know if I can do it! If I have someone to come in last with I could do it! If I train now I can do it! Can I get good enough in 3 months?
That seems so fast! I don't know! I don't know! I don't know!!! Should I? shouldn't I? SCREAM!!! IT would be so exciting and fun! Would it kill me? Oh my gosh! I think we should GO FOR IT!!!! Why not? You only live once and I am tired of living my life being afraid of taking chances.
I have always wanted my world to be safe and relatively easy. When I die, I want to feel like I gave my all. Did my best, Stretched and took on what most people never would. This could be my "Everest" this year!
I truly believe it is important to reach for the stars. So when am I going to do that? Yes, there is a chance I could look like an idiot. Yes, there is a chance of...who knows what? But my kids will know that I am not afraid. I am not afraid of a challenge and of pushing myself to the limit!
