Dedicated to all you "LOOKERS"

My inspiration from other blogs:

“Men often become what they believe themselves to be. If I believe I cannot do something, it makes me incapable of doing it. But when I believe I can, then I acquire the ability to do it even if I didn't have it in the beginning.” -Mahatma Gandhi

This quote came from the blog From Obesity to Triathlete and the Ironman Dreamer If you have a moment read this blog! I can assure you, you WILL NOT be disappointed. This is truly am inspiring story unfolding real time!

Thanks to Jeff, who writes the blog Tri to Endure, for his Motivational Movie Mondays! Every Monday he posts a motivational clip and they have been awesome. One of my favorites was Rocky, “Its not hard you hit. It’s how hard you get hit!”

Any who, this past Monday was a clip from the movie Rudy. His clip led me to the clips you are about to see. I especially enjoyed this one where everyone doubted this young man. They told him the reach more attainable goals. In the end, he was victorious. This one is dedicated to your LOOKERS!


  1. I love shouldn't be hard to believe yourself to be a have accomplished so much already! Thanks for sharing your sources of inspiration and for motivating the rest of us with your story and your journey! You already have the heart of an Ironman, the event itself is all that is left and I know you can do it!

  2. This one from Iron Wil is still one of my favorites - talking about getting up early to train for Ironman.
    "Get up.
    It sucks.
    Then it doesn’t.
    Go train.
    It sucks.
    Then it doesn’t.
    In that order."

    And her quote about Ironman training and race day:
    "To give up the day-to-day luxuries of the masses for the luxury of a day the masses will never have."
