"If you want what others don't have, you have to do more than others are willing to do to get it"

My friend, Jonathan, shared this quote with me this week & it has made a major impact!  It's a quote he heard in the 4th grade & one he's lived by his entire life.  Its so simple & yet so true.  No wonder he's carried it with him all these years.

This motto is a natural fit to my pink goal.  After all, that's what we're doing right?  We're going after what others don't have and were working extra hard to get there.  What do we want when we participate in the 3Day?  We want that feeling that comes with knowing we did our very best & made a difference in the lives of so many.  We're willing to work harder than most people to achieve it.  Training is hard work.  Fundraising is hard work.  Staying focused is hard work.  Learning everything you need to know as a first time walker is hard work.  Balancing all of this is hard work. 

Just yesterday someone commented that this was CRAZY.  Yep, it is.  You have to be a little "crazy" to have the courage and compassion to meet this have something others don't.  At first when people starting saying things like that I was a little offended.  Not anymore.  Now I just realize I'm willing to do something they're.  The finish line is in sight & I know crossing it for the first time is going to be AMAZING!
