“To accomplish great things, we must not only act, but also dream; not only plan, but also believe. -Anatole France
I wanted share an inspirational story today from a young lady I went to high school with named Heather. She recently finished her first IronMan race. If you think an IronMan is something someone just DOES one day, you are sorely mistaken. If you have ever competed in an IronMan, then I salute you. And I must ask you “Are you nuts?!” Ha!
This is just her short “recap” of what the race was like, but I found myself in tears at the end of it. Although it doesn’t relate to a figure competition directly, you can see the parallels of it with regards to Heather’s training and the mental fortitude she needed on race day. We shared similar messages this entire time via Facebook and her blog posts seemed to echo mine sometimes that I felt like we were sharing the same brain.
Please click the link and enjoy Heather’s journey. Congratulation again on being an IronMan Heather!!
