I only have a few that come to mind:
- “Nothing is impossible!” – it helps me get up the hills and on the home stretches.
- “Don’t put an age limit on your dreams!”– I still have so much to achieve, but sometimes feel like I am too old to go for it. When I heard Dara Torres say that on TV I thought “She’s talking to me!” and it’s been my mantra ever since.
- “You can do it!!!!!”– I can hear Rob Schneider say that in “Mr. Deeds” or “The Waterboy” (Adam Sandler movies). He is cheering me on…
- “Tell me again, why am I doing this?”– That’s the thought that ALWAYS comes to mind in the middle of the race…The answer usually is “Because you can, dumb-ass!”
